For some reason xdm is using /usr/local/share/examples/xdm/Xservers instead of /usr/local/lib/X11/xdm/Xservers. From some other messages on the FreeBSD lists, this seems to be a known problem; but so far I can't see why it's happening to fix it. But with the -ignoreABI passed to the X executable in that file, everything works. I tried the documented "IgnoreABI" option in the xorg.conf file, but that didn't seem to have any effect at all. _______________________________________________ email@example.com mailing list http://lists.freebsd.org/mailman/listinfo/freebsd-questions To unsubscribe, send any mail to "[EMAIL PROTECTED]"
