XDM at Startup
I've just completed installing Debian 2.1 (CD from McCarty's book) on a Toshiba
Satellite Pro 420CDT. I built a new kernel with apm enabled from the 2.2.14
source and all peripherals are working correctly. I used xf86config to configure
xfree86 and X starts/runs with no problems. Having done nothing else, when I
rebooted I was surprised to find myself at the xdm login instead of a tty
login. I've searched the FAQ and the Debian tutorial on X. '/etc/X11/config'
does not exist. 'allow-user-xsession' is in '/etc/X11/Xsession.options'. There
are no `/.xsession scripts on the system. I've grepped for start-xdm and
xdm-start-server with no matches found. All of this doesn't match up with the
info I found on the Debian home page and in the user-list archives. How is xdm
starting? How do I get my default tty login back? My ultimate goal is to use
KDE with kdm as my graphical login (compiling source while trying to
solve/waiting for help with this problem). Thanks for your help...
