I have in /etc/kde2/kdm/kdmrc
[Xdmcp]
Enable=true

and had so before the last reboot.

Trying (as a first shot)
  X :1 -query localhost
gives:
  Fatal server error:
  XDMCP fatal error: Manager unwilling Host unwilling
after the X can shortly be seen trying to start.
There must be something else in the way.
Any clues?

I tried
  tracepath www.tldp.org
and got (paranoid deleted the first few lines)

So I guess it's in deed not tldp.org that's down, but something on the
route to there.

Thanx, Michael
