In your labserver, do you have a graphical login window at your labserver o=
not ?
I don't want a graphical login, since I can't get anymore to the login
prompt via Ctrl Alt F1

In KDM, the config directory is /usr/local/share/config/kdm  for kdm window
manager, there is no
Xservers file, and I can't see any file .. there are Xaccess, Xwilling,
Xstartup, Xreset, Xsession files
and a large kdmrc file. There are no man pages for kdm, kdm-bin, Xaccess,

I tried setting ServerCmd=3D""  instead of ServerCmd=3D/usr/local/bin/X -br=
the  kdmrc file ...
Now I only have /usr/local/bin/kdm-bin running, not /usr/local/bin/X

Am I right to believe the primary role of a local X server (local=3D on
labserver) is to have a graphical environment on that labserver machine ?
