Hi all,

I have been using bsd for over a year now, and havent used xdm for ages. I have wmaker installed currently. (.xinitrc and .xsession)
Running 3.4 Stable.

I set up the .sh in /usr/local/etc/rc.d no problem, let it sleep for 10 seconds so getty can do its thing as per the bsd-handbook directions.

After rebooting to check that script works, xdm comes up nicely. When I insert username and p-word, the screen blanks briefly as if positively, but takes me back to the xdm logging. I recall having this problem some time ago, but cant recall how I fixed it!

Please help me out on this one---cant find documentation, its late, and I want to get this baby working NOW!

Cheers for any response!
