KDE 3.0 - kdm & chooser problem (RH7.2)

KDE 3.0 - kdm & chooser problem (RH7.2)

Post by Gareth Davie » Thu, 09 May 2002 14:40:51

Has anyone come across a problem with getting kdm to run the chooser
program in KDE 3.0?

I'm trying to run X -indirect `hostname` out of inittab, and this is OK if
I use xdm, but not with kdm.

I have checked that kdm is responding to xdmcp requests by running a
chooser on another host.

The same configuration works with KDE 2.2.2, so I think a bug may have
crept in, somewhere in the area of invoking the chooser, or perhaps in
the chooser itself.

In the same area, can the KDE chooser be configured with X resources or by
any other means?

1. Q: xdm features in kdm (users & load in chooser)

        I'm using kdm on my linux machine because of the option to choose the
windowmanager with a button. On newer DEC machines the displaymanager
sends information about system load and number of users (X users load:
0.0, 0.0, 0.0) ... Newer linux machines (XFree 3.3) send: Available
(load: 0.0).
Does anybody know how to get the discribed features with the kdm display
manager or how to patch it?
