The startup script is /usr/X11R6/lib/X11/xdm/Xsetup_0. You may also want to have a look at /usr/X11R6/lib/X11/xdm/Xsession. This latter file will call up ~/.xsession, which is where we normally put commands at the beginning of an X session called up through xdm. What I do in that file is to call nvidia-settings and display a background image. I guess ~/.xsession is the right place to put a kldload - this file may be simply a symlink to .xinitrc (if the setup you want is in this file). >> why do you need such thing? > > I want to load sound support only when in a desktop environment, and > auto-disable it when moving back to a console.

Or maybe you could use GiveConsole and TakeConsole (in the same directory) to accomplish these tasks. I hope more expert users will chime in with more information about the difference between these various command files. Have a look at "man xdm" as well as /usr/X11R6/lib/X11/xdm/xdm-config. For some reason, not many users appear to use xdm. The majority apparently prefer kdm or gdm or just .xinitrc. I find that odd myself. -- Tore _______________________________________________ firstname.lastname@example.org mailing list http://lists.freebsd.org/mailman/listinfo/freebsd-questions To unsubscribe, send any mail to "[EMAIL PROTECTED]"
