Default Couple of problems with x11-misc/slim


In my effort to get a lightweight login manager, i have
decided to use slim. However, i m having couple of problems
with it:

1) ctrl-alt-bksp doesn't restart slim, kdm used to do it.
A solution to this says that we should respawn slim
on a VT in /etc/inittab. Does anybody know of another way?

2) another problem is that
/etc/init.d/xdm restart (or stop) doesn't work.

kill -9 works. How to patch the xdm script to achieve this
automatically? This problem is also mentioned in the following

look at comment #18 & #20


Thanks and Regards,
Man Shankar <man.ee.gen(at)gmail.com>
