You don't want to run an XDM login session?

To disable xdm for the current system boot:

    $ /etc/init.d/rc.d/xdm stop

To disable xdm startups for *all* system boots:

    $ /usr/bin/update-rc.d -f xdm remove

To allow *remote* xdm control but disable local control:  comment out
the localhost display in /etc/X11/xdm/Xservers

To remove xdm from your system:

    $ apt-get remove xdm
