Seems like currently /etc/event.d/prefdm doesn't have the respawn flag.  I
suppose it should.
Comment 1 jmccann 2008-04-02 13:20:04 EDT
On the other hand, ,I guess one case were we shouldn't try to respawn is when
the X server won't start (as in rawhide today).
Comment 2 Orion Poplawski 2008-04-02 14:01:47 EDT
This is needed.  Old init would blacklist an entry after multiple crashes (foo
is respawning too fast - disabling for 5 minutes).

But now if I kill kdm, it is not restarted, which is bad.
Comment 3 Bill Nottingham 2008-04-02 14:21:25 EDT
You can set limits on respawn.
Comment 4 Bill Nottingham 2008-04-04 10:29:05 EDT
