You first need to get rid of that. xdm can't open /dev/ttyv8 while getty
is hammering at it.
I turned that off all ready before running xdm from root command line.


What does xdm -debug 1 turn up? You said nothing related to xdm in /var/log/Xorg.0.log, but it would still be helpful to see the last lines of the file, so we know why X quit. And since Xorg.0.log isn't timestamped, check if the last modification time of the file corresponds with the last time you ran the command. This will determine if xdm actually gets to the stage of starting the X server or gives up sooner. You may also want to set the -error option (see man xdm) and check if anything useful is written there. With current information, the possible causes range from errors in a configuration file xdm reads on start up to X display problems.


Startx works ok so not xorg problem. Next question is are the xdm configuration files suppose to work as delivered by the port install AS IS?
As a default config demo?
