We are running xdm on our RISC/6000 with a couple of X-stations.
We've noticed that logging in at the xdm login screen doesn't result
in an entry in /etc/utmp. This is the file used by who and finger
to get user login status. An rlogin does update properly, though.
I checked through the sources for xdm and found a program called
sessreg that can be called from Xstartup when xdm initiates a
session. The man page for sessreg describes using it under BSD
and System V. Has anyone gotten it to work for xdm under AIX?
Do *your* sessions show up if you run who? Are you calling anything
from /usr/lib/X11/xdm/Xstartup ? Are you even using an Xstartup file?
Any help would be greatly appreciated.
