I have a few questions, hope someone can answer them. First is, when I
reboot my machine, FreeBSD always fails to supply the password prompt
the first time someone tries to log in after reboot. AFter that first time,
no problems until I reboot again. What would be causing this?
Did you try pressing return to get a new prompt? I notice that the
Password: prompt takes a while to appear for the first time, but it is there.
Second, in the rc.local file, how would I start XDM up only as a daemon,
so that it will accept connections from other terminals, but not start
up my Xserver on the console? I looked in the manual pages, and didnt
I just ran /usr/X11R6/bin/xdm. You may want to try commenting out the
line in /usr/X11R6/lib/X11/xdm/Xservers. I haven't tried that though.
