KDM starts automatically from console?


When I start the computer, it ends up at the KDM login, then I choose the console out of the menu selection. While in the console the computer will, after a few seconds, automatically return to the KDM login. If I login to root or user it will stay in the console.

Is this normal or did I mess something up?

That is exactly how it is supposed to work you did nothing wrong. If you wish for kdm not to start either delete the link /etc/rc2.d/S99kdm so it does not get started or use update-rc.d -f kdm remove to remove the all the links using the tool provided for this purpose. note: when kdm gets upgraded the next time the links will be recreated using the last method this is not so if you use the first method.

I think I will leave well enough alone, thanks.

Another problem that has shown up, that was not there before, is while I am logged in thru the console this statement keeps popping up every 15 to 30 seconds and does not stop. It doesn't seem to interfere with anything but it is annoying.

DROPPED IN=eth0 OUT= MAC=ff:ff:ff:ff:ff:ff:00:30:1b:37:76:ff:08:00 SRC=192.168.1.100 DST=192.168.1.125 LEN=229 TOS=0x00 PREC=0x00 TTL=128 ID=17360 PROTO=UDP SPT=138 DPT=138 LEN=209

Some of the numbers change but keeps appearing on a regular basis, does anyone know what this is and should it be corrected to stop showing on its own?

Did you recently install a firewall using IP tables? That looks like it logging to the console. If you have a windows machine on your network you will get that junk all the time, a good percentage of background traffic on the internet is composed of those useless come hack me messages from MS or other infected machines trying to connect to yours from the net. I believe I solved it on my firewall machine by editing the file /etc/init.d/klogd and changing the line KLOGD="" to KLOGD="-c 4" then /etc/init.d/klogd restart as root of course.
