At the very least, the X (or xdm) package should let you
get X working before activating xdm. I had a really bad
turn with my new machine that has an SiS 6326, and Slink
(frozen). X didn't work, but xdm did.
My X now works, but not without using single user to kill
xdm, and some playing with XF86Config and lots of RTFM,
several of them, Readmes and HOWTOs too.
<flame> Thanks for this. May it be plastered on the walls
of the X developers. </flame>
