XDM does not initialize Fluxbox
I changed the default runlevel in inittab from 3 to 4 to start X immediately after reboot, but once the login screen appears it gets into a loop... I enter my username and password, after which fluxbox is supposed to start. it does seem to start but after halve a second the screen returns to the login screen... and when I login a second time, it does the same: there seems to be some kind of login loop. It doesn.t seem to read the xinitrc file properly.
But then this, when I start the comp.The strange thing is, when I'm in runlevel 3 and I manually start X (startx) there is no problem.
Somewhere between authenticating and starting fluxbox there seems to be a problem...
I tried to edit the X init files and everything, but I can.t get it to work... and I don.t understand why runlevel 4 doesn.t work from after boot, when it does work from the commandline.
running slackware 9.1, Xfree86 4.3.0., xdm, fluxbox (as only WM), kernel 2.6.9
can anyone help me?
