Try starting not starting gdm at boot, and kicking it off later. This will enable you to get a better view of what breaks. You should also look at the gdm logs, and possibly the X logs. Personally, I use xdm, so I don't have much help specific to gdm. However, you might try xdm to see if the problem is with gdm or more directly related to X. _______________________________________________ [EMAIL PROTECTED] mailing list http://lists.freebsd.org/mailman/listinfo/freebsd-questions To unsubscribe, send any mail to "[EMAIL PROTECTED]"
