Description Need Real Name 2001-06-01 04:29:18 EDT
Description of Problem: The config file /etc/X11/xdm/xdm-config is missing
from the XFree86-xdm package. It is needed when {k,x}dm are used as display
managers instead of gdm. The scripts
Xsetup_0, GiveConsole, TakeConsole will not be executed when kdm is used.

How Reproducible: Every time

Steps to Reproduce:
1.  /sbin/telinit 3
2.  echo "KDE" >/etc/sysconfig/desktop
3.  /sbin/telinit 5 # should start kdm as display manager

Actual Results:
Xsetup_0 not executed, no kdm pid file, no sessreg after login, ...

Expected Results:

xdm-config has been moved from XFree86-xdm to xinitrc package. The 
dependency in XFree86.spec file was not updated (xinitrc >= 2.9.8).
I am using self - compiled  packages -XFree86-4.0.3-5.src.rpm from
RH71 and an older version of xinitrc (xinitrc-2.9.10.src.rpm)
from RH70 => no xdm-config.

Comment 2 Mike A. Harris 2001-06-02 07:37:41 EDT
Ok..  your message is confusing though.  You say that you are using:
"dependency in XFree86.spec file was not updated (xinitrc >= 2.9.8)",
but then say that you re using an older version of xinitrc 2.9.10 - 
which is newer than the one that you list as should be a dependancy...

I think the proper way to fix it is to remove the dependancy in xinitrc
on XFree86, and put a dependancy of xinitrc in the XFree86 package..
Not sure though.  Suggestion?
Comment 3 Need Real Name 2001-06-03 08:35:48 EDT
I was backporting XFree86-4.0.3-5.src.rpm to RH70 and RH62. There is
a dependency on xinitrc in the spec file for XFree86 which needs updating.
XFree86-xdm is built with this spec file. Try 
``rpm -q --requires XFree86-xdm | grep xinitrc44 on RH71 or
``rpm -q --requires -p 
/mnt/cdrom/RedHat/RPMS/XFree86-xdm-4.0.3-5.i386.rpm | grep xinitrc44 (RH71
cdrom in drive)

Ignore the 44. That should have been single quotes.
Comment 5 Mike A. Harris 2001-07-30 03:38:59 EDT
XFree86 in rawhide has dependancy on xinitrc 3.10 or greater.
