Re: XFree86 3.2 Initial Reports

Actually-- I think /etc/X11/Xresources or /etc/X11/xdm/Xresources contains the xrdb compatible database of resources used at login.  One can change the contents of that file to completely customize the look-and-feel of the login panel without having to modify any of the startup stuff...  

When I get a chance, I'll create a better configuration post if for net.community.review.

How about:

xdm-background-colour darksalmon

if grep -q ^run-xconsole /etc/X11/config
  xconsole -geometry 480x130-0-0 -daemon -notify -verbose -fn fixed \
    -exitOnFail -file /dev/xconsole

if grep -q ^modify-xdm-background /etc/X11/config
  XDMBGCOLOUR=`grep ^xdm-background-colour /etc/X11/config | cut -f2 -d" "`
  if ! xsetroot -solid $XDMBGCOLOUR
    xsetroot -solid cornflowerblue
