simply another way to handle logins. Been using XDM since FreeBSD 8 its only
gotten easier. I have .xsession as:
This allows easy access via ssh to other servers. The login screen looks better
if you add 'xsetroot -solid grey' to /usr/local/lib/X11/xdm/Xsetup_0. All this
can also be done with .xinitrc [but not by me :) ]
I am running FBSD 10.3, xorg-7.7_2, xdm-1.1.11_6, xfce-4.12_1 with no xorg.conf
file. This does nothing for activating restart or shutdown.
