Remove the -nodaemon string.

Subject: KDM won't start KDE
I just installed FreeBSD 4.8 on this machine and I set up kdm to run by
changing /etc/ttys to:
ttyv8 "/usr/local/bin/kdm -nodaemon" xterm on secure
When it boots I get:
login: ..<time>.. kdm: Abnormal helper termination, code 0, signal
But KDM seems to start up fine and I get the login screen, but when I
login (as either root or a user) the login dialog disappears and I'm
left with the KDE background and the X cursor. If I goto tty0 I now
have the message:
..<time>.. kdm: no modules loaded for `kde' service
and in bot /var/log/XFree86.0.log and kdm.log it has this message
repeated about 4 times a second:
AUDIT: ..<time>..: 124 XFree86: client 2 rejected from local host
I searched on google for the above messages and found some discussion
about PAM problems. I looked at pam.conf and noticed that xdm and gdm
were listed in there, but not kdm. So I added an identical section for
kdm but it doesn't seem to have made any difference.
If I remove the kdm stuff from ttys and get a command line login I can
run startx and KDE comes up just fine.
Was there something else I needed to configure for KDM to run correctly?
