Hi again Matt,
Well, I still don't know what's up with xdm, but I did install slim and
after exiting wmaker, the system takes 10 seconds or so, then beeps and
returns to the slim login screen. So, that's a workable session manager.
I'm happy to troubleshoot the xdm stuff further (I did a lot of editing
.xsesssion, different users, etc. to same conclusion), but I can live
with (actually prefer) slim anyway :).
What I did:
pkg install slim slim-themes
restart, et. voila...
login, use wmaker, exit, wait for the 10 seconds and beep, then back to
slim for another round.
