Re: Can't start KDE or TWM with KDM

Of course it would be better. But if you install the xorg meta-package, it just doesn't work. You have two options :
1°) look through all the config files to find the wrong line(s) and correct it (them);
2°) create this symlink.
Well, I tried the first, but didn't find a way to fix it. If you can, tell me. I'd be pleased to remove this un-needed symlink.

#ln -s /usr/pkg/xorg /usr/X11R6
It worked for me.

Thanks David, it works fine.
I just had to change the location from /usr/X11R6 to /usr/X11.

Do you know whether it is possible to install a package like xorg to its
normal location (ie /usr/X11) ?

Note that /usr/X11 is not normal. Xorg works fine installed using defaults (/usr/pkg/xorg) or using /usr/X11R6/.

I may have misunderstood the earlier emails in this thread. ... But I think it would better to fix the problem itself instead of creating un-needed symlinks or moving X around.
