Re: gdm and SuSE 6.3


look in /sbin/init.d/rc2.d and /sbin/init.d/rc3.d for scripts that are only
linked in rc2.d.
AFAIK gdm isn't started in runlevel 3, but possibly there is a script in
runlevel 2 who sets up the keyboard or whatever.
I'm using SuSE 6.1 and don't know the problem, but maybe that helps.
