Re: X on BlueG3

I am using the Xpmac server on my B&W G3 and am quite happy with it.
What I did was modfify my xdm config files to use a differant server.

You can do this by editing /usr/X11R6/lib/X11/xdm/Xservers

and changing the config from :
:0 local /usr/X11R6/bin/X

:0 local /usr/X11R6/bin/Xpmac

running xdm from the command line, brings up the xlogin screen
for user control, although I have my machine defaulting to init 5
which starts the xdm process automatically.

Hope this helps!
