yesterday I upgraded from squeeze to wheezy. in squeeze i used xdm and fvwm. now it does not work. xdm does not “see” fvwm. i made .xinitrc and .xsession so as to read
but to no avail.
startx fvwm also does not work
.xsession-errors does not give anything about xdm but it does about gdm3 which I also tried to install
/etc/gdm3/Xsession: Beginning session setup…
localuser:… being added to access control list
XIO: fatal IO error 11 (Resource temporarily unavailable) on X server “:0”^M
after 123 requests (123 known processed) with 0 events remaining.^M
Xsession: X session started at Tue Oct 7 07:29:25 CEST 2014
however gdm3 bug is known (one cannot get in through gdm3). kdm also does not work (it hangs)
xdm3 works with gnome managers, e.g., mutter, but I don’t want that. i want fvwm
when there is mutter installed, xdm logs me in fine. when i purge mutter and reinstall fvwm, xdm just doesn’t work.
any hints? 8)
