Description of problem:
I configure kdm to enable XDMCP. When I try to connect using indirect method, X
server just keeps restarting. Query method works well.
I see the following message in /var/log/messages:
kdm: Greeter exited unexpectedly
kdm: Abnormal helper termination, code 1, signal0
kdm: Unknown session exit code from manager process
I upgraded to kdebase 3.0.3-5 - same behavior
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Start kdm with XDMCP enabled
2. connect from remote terminal using X -indirect
Actual Results: X server keeps restarting
Expected Results: Get chooser window.
could you attach your kdm config file for testing please ? thanks
