Bug#586540: kdm on initial start at kfreebsd bootup does not allow keyboard input


The easiest solution for now is to alter ServerArgsLocal
at least on GNU/kFreeBSD in /etc/kde4/kdm/kdmrc to
"ServerArgsLocal=vt7 -br -nolisten tcp"

It's very likely that this change would break "Start new session" feature of
KDE which works fine at the moment. While I could live with having it broken
on kFreeBSD, that's definitely not acceptable for Linux where this problem
does not manifest itself.

The bug we are facing here is that kdm starts on vt2 when it's not supposed to
even bother with VTs below 7. ServerVTs=-7 setting in /etc/kde4/kdm/kdmrc
takes care of it (on Linux). However, apparently ServerVTs does not work on
kfbsd for some reason (nor it's present in default kdmrc). Finding that reason
would be the real fix and I will look into it later today/tomorrow. It could
be as easy as #define which does not cover kfbsd (I hope).

Given it looks like it is not so easy, would be possible to upload
new package with "ServerArgsLocal=vt7 -br -nolisten tcp" on GNU/kFreeBSD.

It would workaround the bug for squeeze now, the VT switching can be implemented later.
