I have a couple of questions regarding starting X using xdm. First of
all after adding a line to /etc/rc.d/rc.local to start xdm on boot-up,
xdm starts fine but when I log in the X session is immediately terminated
and I am returned to the xdm login prompt. The last line in my
.xsessions file calls the mwm window manager and is the only command in
the file that is not run in the background. When I start X with the
startx command the system works fine.
The other question I have is regarding the automatic placement of
iconified windows. What is the syntax for the xsessions or xinit files
to specify where on the screen the applications that I start as icons are
to be placed.
Please email responses. Thanks in advance.
