        I tried to remove the directories that was not removed by deinstall
        manually, and then installed again, now no complaints about not bei=
ng
        able to uninstall I can now start gdm again, with out any complaint=
s,
        but when I run sockstat I cannot see gdm-binary active nor any list=
en
        on udp 177.

        Any suggestions?


    GDM 2.24 ist broken, not only on FreeBSD but also on other systems like
    Fedora. My personal workaround ist to keep using 2.20 for now, which
    seems to be the last working version that came from the gnome team.

gdm-2.24.1_5 is not broken, else I couldn't have logged onto my
gnome-desktop some minutes ago. But there are some feature-regressions
compared to 2.20 - developers say they have rewritten important parts
of the code.

Greetings,

Uli.

Thanks, but how do I reverse back to gdm 2.20? Is this possible with
the portupgrade tools?
