Hello everybody,

I' d like to replace Gdm with Lightdm, the reason being that Lightdm allows a very smooth transition from login to the Xfce desktop, whereas with Gdm there is always a flash before it loads Xfce.
Assuming that I remove Gdm and install Lightdm from sources, how do I configure the system so it would load it properly?

You guessed right Roarde, I downloaded network manager and nm-applet packages from the repository page but saved them on a USB and then installed them using  upgradepkg --install-new.
I  couldn't use slapt-get because this is a minimal VL distro that I am building and couldn't connect it to the wireless in the first place ahah.
As you say, on my regular VL distro, network manager shows up in Vasm.
Thank you guys  for the info on how to start apps and services properly, that's exactly what I need to know.
Chrooting into a new distro and installing apps and libraries by hand in the wee hours of the morning is a great way to learn a bit more about the workings of Linux.

If NetworkManager was installed from the VL repository, the "networkmanager" service does indeed show up on vasm's "Services" menu. Starting as regular user, vasm --> Super --> Services, then pick each runlevel in turn.

Using the services utility directly, as suggested is still the surer way to go. Vasm uses it to enable or disable, and also to stop and start selected services appropriately, in real time without rebooting. There's no manpage for service, but if you just issue service without options you'll see some helpful info.

We've been trying to get rid of this iteration of VASM for a very long time now. There are just a whole lot more variables now than when it was first created.

When it comes to starting services, you can use the command "service". For NetworkManager, the syntax would be:
Code: [Select]
service -s networkmanager 2345
This creates links to start (-s) the networkmanager script (in /etc/rc.d/init.d) in runlevels 2, 3, 4 and 5.

To remove a service, use "-r" instead of "-s".

Thanks for the link, yaoasm.  I've been trying to get apache and php running for over a year now.  This should be a huge help.

You can append the required commands to the /etc/rc.d/rc.local script

Looks like PHP needs to be recompiled with MySQL support.
