This is a solution, but not the best one (IMHO) because you
can want the x/g/k/dm in order to serve some connected X-terminals (or
slave workstations).
find the Xservers file corresonding to you ?dm (/etc/X11/xdm for ex.)
and comment the line 
:0 local /usr/X11R6/bin/X vt7 -dpi 100 -nolisten tcp
or equivalent.
