To me at least it sounds like the kde / kdm developers say what I have to do on a FreeBSD machine, don't you? I agree the words "don't use -nodaemon" are not used, but they are not in their command line. > According to the FreeBSD Handbook > 'To enable kdm, the ttyv8 entry in /etc/ttys has to be adapted.

Absolutely _the_ book to read when you run a fbsd flavour. Still I hope that someone more technical than I am will explain some more on this topic. -- http://nagual.nl/ --- PGP/GnuPG key: F86289CE ++ Running FreeBSD 6.1 ++ Solaris 10 11/06 ++ _______________________________________________ email@example.com mailing list http://lists.freebsd.org/mailman/listinfo/freebsd-questions To unsubscribe, send any mail to "[EMAIL PROTECTED]"
