Re: setting up gdm (solved)
After going though alot of trouble to figure out why it doesn't work and
not really finding much documention on this, I decided that I should send
this info to the list and maybe keep someone else from this pain.
There are 3 things that need to be checked in etc.
added to /etc/rc.conf:
added to /etc/ttys:
ttyE4 "/usr/libexec/getty Pc" vt220 off secure
added to /etc/wscons.conf (this may already exist):
screen 4 - -
Then reboot and you should have the xlogin.
