Subject: "Session Menu" xdm/gdm problem Date: Mon, 5 Jun 2006 14:47:09
I'm having a frustrating X problem. I installed X via portupgrade and
hacked /etc/ttys to enable xdm. I can log in successfully both as root
and as a non-priv user, but either way I get to a screen that says:
Load Session # Delete Session # Break Lock # Default/Fail Safe # Cancel
But if I disable xdm and simply use startx, it launches X and my window
manager fine. I tried deleting my .xinitrc but that didn't help.
I have a feeling some X component isn't in place. I tried compiling gdm
as a replacement but that didn't help (same symptoms). I was able to run
gdmsetup (or was it gdmconfig?) by logging into gdm in fail-safe mode, and
I could change some of the GDM settings, but I didn't see anything that I
could twist to fix the problem.

You should place .xinitrc in your home directory. simply copy
/etc/X11/xinit/xinitrc to ~/.xinitrc
that should work
