Hi! Try editing the file /etc/X11/config. Mine looks like this:
- - -
# This file contains configuration flags for the X Window System.
# For a description of the meanings of the flags, see
- - -
Also, if you have shadow-passwords installed, take a look at
/etc/init.d/xdm. It should use xdm-shadow to start xdm, but
atleast on Debian 1.3 installed from frozen it pointed to xdm which caused
many "invalid login"'s.
Hope this helps,
