RE: gpm & xdm question
Well, have you looked into the /etc/rc?.d directories ? Assuming runlevel
of 5 since you going into x, there should be a startup script for gpm in
/etc/rc5.d named something like S88gpm. delete it. Now gpm won't start
when entering level 5. It will still be running if you use another runlevel
or start it yourself, so you might want make a kill script and place it in
I use file-rc package, so all runlevel are config'ed in one file.
