Re: xdm question...

For those following my problems with OpenBSD/Alpha and X, I have further developments...  I've recompiled the X11 sources from cvs and disabled XDM...  The compile went fine and everything runs perfectly...  Everything but xdm, that is.  At least now I can start X with startx rather than "startx -- -kb".  However, as I mentioned xdm still bombs.  Sometimes it core dumps, but not always...  I'm including the output of "xdm -nodaemon -debug 1" since I'm sure someone can better interpret than I...  Any help would be appreciated.  Thanks.

Well, this probably means that we'll have to disable XKB by default in
future release fot Xtga.

This should work. To find out why it doesn't you may try to start xdm
manually with the -nodaemon -debug flags. Also make sure that
/usr/X11R6/lib/X11/xdm is a symbolic link pointing to /var/X11/xdm.
