RE: 2nd request


I have SuSE 6.3, Helix, but this may help:

a) open the file gdm.conf in /var/X11R6/lib/gdm and edit the display line in
the [servers] group (in my case, near thend of the file) so that it points
to the vt07 console:

0=/usr/bin/X11/X vt07

At least in SuSE 6.3, the vt07 is reserved to the X server, when loggin in
runlevel 3.

b) make sure that /var/lib/gdm belong to user gdm group gdm, mode 0750
(SuSEconfig does change it to user gdm group shadow whenever I
install/uninstall something via Yast)

Hope this helps.
