My UID is 509 and I don't want to change it because I work in an NFS environment. Is there a way to have my username listed in GDM? Currently, I must click on "Not listed".

Well the long term solution is to migrate to the new Fedora, and long standing default user numbers. It is easy to convert UID. Edit the UID in /etc/passwd and /etc/groups , then run chown -R --from=509:509 1000:1000 /*
