I just now found the file. It's at:
it was without the -dpi 96 -- I added in the -dpi 96 to make it be thus:
:0 local /usr/X11R6/bin/X -dpi 96
But that has no effect when using gdm. So, I then edited /etc/rc.d/rc.4 so that it fires up xdm instead of firing up gdm
And, the dpi went from 72x72 to 76x72
I then restored rc.4 back to original so it fires up gdm.
I then extensively looking at the gdm system. But it's a bit too complex for me to grasp it all. I understood portions of it.
I see a /usr/bin/gdm which is a file, a shell script -- it in turn calls up a binary, the gdm-binary
I wonder if the dpi can changed at there, the /usr/bin/gdm ?
So close -- got bunch else configured the way I want it in Slackware 10. Now, if I can just improve upon the font.
