it's started from rc via the script /etc/init.d/xdm, which basically
calls /usr/bin/X11/xdm with absolutely no arguments. and i tried just
running xdm as root from the command line to no avail.
i furthermore can't find anything on NIS/yp/RPC in xdm(1),
xdm.options(5), grepping /etc/X11 returns nothing usable, and this and
that. basically i don't know why it thinks it has to look for an NIS
master at 127.0.0.1, which make as little sense as my mom talking
because the request goes to 127.0.0.1, i am actually tempted to
believe that this is something else but NIS/yp, still using portmap,
but not using the yp stuff. any thoughts?
