Hmm - you mean changing /etc/ttys to
ttyv8 "/usr/X11R6/bin/gdm -nodaemon" xterm on secure
I toyed with the idea, but to me this solution looks dirty - according
to gdm, the canonical way is using rc.conf.
I still don't understand why gdm is racing against initd *after*
updating the world (gdm worked fine before the update) and why the
changed gdm.conf (or the factory conf) doesn't work - could it be that
there's a slight difference between the amd64 world and the i386 world?
Happy new year everyone,
