Bug#284577: kdm does not start when rebooting
I am expericiencing something awkward with a freshly installed PC (using
testing). kdm does not start when I reboot the computer. I get the following
error in /var/log/syslog:
Dec 2 21:18:30 localhost kdm: :0: IO Error in XOpenDisplay
Dec 2 21:18:30 localhost kdm: Display :0 cannot be opened
Dec 2 21:18:30 localhost kdm: Unable to fire up local display :0;
but once the computer has started if I run:
it works fine.
Kdm version is 3.2.2-1 with Debian testing. Before filing a bug I would like
to know if somebody sees the same behaviour and if there is an explanation/
I suspect this happens with new installations and not with upgraded systems
from Woody to Sarge, because I have seen the problem with 2 new hosts and not
seen it in 2 upgraded systems.
