    Default init 4 problem

    startx works fine
    init 4 hangs at starting up the X11 session manager...

    init 3 on F6 will unhang it

    /var/log/X.org.log sez
    (WW) xf86CloseConsole:VT_GETSTATE failed: Bad file descriptor
    (WW) xf86CloseConsole:KDSETMODE failed: Bad file descriptor
    (WW) xf86CloseConsole:VT_GETSTATE failed: Bad file descriptor

    /var/log/syslog sez
    kdm: :0[3136]: IO Error in XOpenDisplay
    kdm[3133]: X server for display 0 quit unexpectedly

    Not sure if this is a BT3 specific issue or if I'm a 'tard.

    Default My init problem revisited

    While looking deeper into my X logs, I noticed that I get different X versions depending on how I start it. How is this possible?

    startx log:
    X Window System Version 1.3.0

    ...
    (**) ModulePath set to "/usr/lib/xorg/modules"

    and when I start X with init 4
