Bug #2537: Possible kdm & xdm running simulataneously

Author: BlueSeahorse
Status: New
Priority: Normal
Target version: 

I thought I would take Dragon Fly BSD for a drive on my AMD FX8120, ASUS M5A97 EVO, Radeon 7950, 16GB unbuffered ECC.  I tried to run live from the CD but 'startx' would not launch xorg.  So I installed anyway after seeing the graphical installer.  After installation it appears xdm is installed but startx will not start xorg.  "Xoeg -configure" then "Xorg -config /root/xorg.conf.new -retro" produces a beautiful crosshatch and moving mouse.  So I installed kde-desktop-4.8.4 after I placed "RCD_SCRIPTS_DIR=?/etc/rc.d" and "PKG_RCD_SCRIPTS=YES" in the top endif in /usr/pkg/etc/mk.conf   I have added "kdm4_enable="YES" to /etc/rc.conf   I have written "echo "exec startkde" ~/.initrc"  Then I have correct ttyv8 to "/usr/pkg/bin/kdm -nodaemon" xterm on secure"

Usually my message from my machine is cannot start xorg or /usr/etc/X  Then I got a message that kdm will not start because another instance of xdm is running.

I was of course following the recipe in your online handbook.  Just thought you might want to know.
