Houston, there's a problem


 attached is the typescript for the 3.3.6 -> v18 upgrade.  Unpacking
 works.  Yeah.


 * xfs
 Starting X font server: xfsusage: /usr/bin/X11/xfs [-config config_file] [-port tcp_port]
 already running.


 start-stop-daemon --start --quiet --pidfile $PIDFILE --exec $DAEMON -- -background || echo -n " already running"
 --background (double hyphen) is a start-stop-daemon option, not a xfs
 one.  [for anyone reading this: change your /etc/fs/config, xfs
 segfaults on start up if the path its trying to read doesn't exist --
 will look into it later if noone beats me to it]

 * xdm

 Starting X display manager: xdm.

 and doesn't start.  Starting the xserver manually:

 Could not find config file!
 - Tried:

 my best guess would be to fix the 3.3.6 servers to look in
 /etc/X11/XF86Config.  Am I missing something obvious here? 

 Trying to log in:

 Aug 30 09:27:44 ysabell PAM_unix[233]: authentication failure; (uid=0) -> **unknown** for xdm service

 Aug 30 09:28:11 ysabell PAM_unix[252]: (su) session opened for user root by marcelo(uid=1000)

 sorry, I don't grok PAM and I don't think I can learn it in the five
 minutes I have left here.
