xdm init script problem - "invoke-rc.d xdm start" fails ?


Hello,

Runing Debian lenny 64.bit.
I have this weird xdm init script problem - it starts/stops only if "--force" option is used:
Code:
# invoke-rc.d xdm start
#
# invoke-rc.d --force xdm start
Starting X display manager: xdm.
#
Why this is happening ?
How could I solve this ?

thanks
Vilius

Without the --force flag invoke-rc.d will only start services that are started by default in the current run level. Is there an "S" link for xdm in /etc/rc2.d (assuming you have not changed from the default runlevel)?

Cheers,

Evo2.
