Re: New X Server crashes
MAS> Okay, it appears to be working now.
Well, more or less. Everything runs fine with `startx', but I'm
having some peculiar difficulties with xdm. Specifically,
1. xdm now takes over a minute from when the daemon is started, either
by init or manually, to when the login widget appears. Is this
normal now, or is there anything I can do to speed it up?
2. Does anyone have any clue what could cause an xdm-started X server
to use a different video mode than an xinit-started X server?
Because that's what it's doing. I copied a 1152x864 mode line from
my old XF86Config file, and it works fine with startx, but when run
from xdm, the X server reverts to 1024x768.
