Re: annoucement: auto-login patch for xdm

I have this script as /etc/init.d/startmyx.  It auto-logs me in on tty9, and
xdm can still run on tty7.

It could be modified to run xdm after startx finishes.

So my question is: who really needs a patch to xdm?

Please always Cc to me when replying to me on the lists.
