Essaie d'installer os-bs, il supporte plusieurs partition DOS. Tu peux le
trouver dans...

hmmm, je ne sais pas ce que c'est... Si tu as configure xdm, tu devrais
essayer plutot...

-- I don't know what this (kdm) is... If you have xdm configured, you
should rather try:

# xdm startup:
if [ -x /usr/X11R6/bin/xdm ] ; then
  echo -n 'Starting xdm.'
  # need to cleanup first.
  if [ -f /tmp/.X0-lock ] ; then
    echo -n .
    killall xdm
    echo -n .
    rm -f /tmp/.X0-lock
    echo -n .
    rm /usr/X11R6/lib/X11/xdm/xdm-pid
  fi
  # now, we can start it.
  /usr/X11R6/bin/xdm && echo 'Done.' || echo -n 'Failed. Big problem.'
fi

Give me feedback...

Donne des nouvelles!
