Hi all, I'm trying to get GDM and Metacity running on FreeBSD 4.8.
The first time I ran GDM, I got a message saying no XDMCP running. I then ran gdmsetup in an X session and set Enable XDMCP. Now I can run gdm and it exits without errors, but nothing comes up on screen 9. I see gdm-binary running in a ps list. I've also tried changing /etc/ttys entry for xdm to gdm, but it still does nothing. My other question is with regards to metacity. I have changed my .xinitrc file to just have metacity on a line by itself, and I think metacity is running because CTRL-ALT-LEFT and CTRL-ALT-RIGHT appears to be cycling desktops (window appears in the middle of my screen), but I'm not getting a taskbar, dock, background or anything else of use. If anyone has any advice on these issues, I'd be greatful. I have checked the archives, but they appear to be down. Any search term, including FreeBSD returns The archive freebsd-questions contains the following items relevant to `freebsd': and no results.
