xdm starts, but X doesn't
When I boot into Debian on my PowerMac 4400/200, the xdm logon
screen pops up, but when I log in, the system thinks for a few
seconds, and then returns to the logon screen. It's not a
password problem, because I can put in a bad password and get the
same result but with a message saying "invalid login". That
message is not there when I use the correct password.
If I Ctrl-(Command-?)Alt-F1 to the first virtual terminal, I can
log in and then start X manually with the "startx -- :1" command.
Apparently Debian PowerPC does things differently enough from the
i386 flavor that I can't quite sort out what's happening.
