Hello!

XDM is the problem. I think the problem is, that other important X packages
depend on the XDM package. So there is the possibility to delete the
symlinks to xdm in the runlevel directories:

/etc/rc(number from 0..6).d
/etc/rcS.d

Just look for any links named *xdm* in these dirs and remove the links (I
would suggest to use MC to find and delete these links). After this action,
the startup will lead to the console.

Kind Regards,

Stephan Hachinger

P.S.: Please fill out the about lines of your mails and I also suggest to
you using text-only (non-html) mails.
