I started using x11/slim a week ago and I must say I love it. One thing I noticed is that some environment variables don't get set which I normally have when I login at the console. To analyze the problem I run:
# logging in via syscons
$ env | sort > normal-login
# logging in via slim and then invoking an xterm
$ env | sort > slim-login
A diff showed the following difference:
Does anyone have an idea what's going wrong? I noticed that FTP_PASSIVE_MODE gets set in /etc/login.conf.
It's as if slim does not load /etc/login.conf
Thanks you for your help.
