X11 and XDM - Mac Networking

Hi, How can I setup X11 on the Mac (OS X 10.3.2) so it does XDM? I want it to be the client, i.e. let the XDM host managing X put up his login screen on my Mac. It's the same functionality as MacX or eXodus are providing. Uli Wienands...

    Hi,

    How can I setup X11 on the Mac (OS X 10.3.2) so it does XDM? I want it
    to be the client, i.e. let the XDM host managing X put up his login
    screen on my Mac. It's the same functionality as MacX or eXodus are
    providing.

    You should read the man pages for X on OS X to see what they've got
    to say, but this is generally handled in your ~/.xinitrc or
    ~/.xsession file.

    Also read the man pages for xdm- some X environments can automagically
    insert the correct code into the correct config file. Englightenment
    can do this if you startx, then in one of your xterms call
    Enlightenment. This pops up a dialog telling you there's already a
    window manager running, do you want Englightenment to modify your
    ~/.xinitrc, etc. Click "yes" and let it do its thing. Then quit X
    and re-start it. I've never tried xdm, but it might also have similar
    capabilities.

    Read the man pages (before posting my question!) but they refer to
    setting up a server (so my Mac can manage other displays) rather than as
    a client... will try again, though.

    Tx anyway,

    Thanks much. Haven't tried the solutions yet but they do appear to
    address my issue.
