fellow news readers,

I am at my wits end on this one.
For some reason the shadow version of xdm isn't
working on my linux box.  Sorry for the long
post but I wanted to be able to give the error
outputs so someone might be able to help me.
The non-shadow version of xdm works fine.
[except I can't log in because i've switched to shadow.]
But the shadow version never even gives me a login
box.  If anyone can help thanks.

jonathan.

we're dealing with linux 1.2.13 ELF.
all the rest of the shadow stuff works,
but the problem seems to be with the
display somehow.?
