The kdebase package considers /usr/pkg/share/kde/config/kdm/kdmrc as a fixed file (it has a MD5 checksum) but it is changed when changing settings in the KDE control panel. In discussions on tech-pkg (18 March 2004) it was mentioned it should honor PKG_SYSCONFDIR.
This causes problems when trying to upgrade kdebase, and can leave kdm nonfunctional.
This is for kdebase-3.2.1nb1.
From the KDE Control Panel, under "System Administration", select "Login Manager". Change some settings. Run "pkg_admin check kdebase" which will return
/usr/pkg/share/kde/config/kdm/kdmrc fails MD5 checksum
Workaround: one of
- don't change kdm settings
- copy kdmrc to other directory (eg, /etc) and invoke kdm with
"/usr/pkg/bin/kdm -config /etc/kdmrc" (Mark Davies)
- delete leftover files from /usr/pkg/share/kde/config/kdm when upgrading kdebase
