Gentoo XFCE4 / XDM / TWM Problems
Okay... So with the latest update to xorg-server (I think it was 6.5), xdm stopped loading XFCE4 and I couldn't get it to load anything but TWM.

Here was the problem:

Somehow, an important file got removed.  The file is this one:

  • /etc/env.d/90xsession

The contents of the file is simply:

XSESSION="Xfce4"

With that, (and all the other /etc/rc.conf and /etc/conf.d/xdm settings in place), xdm and slim will now properly load XFCE4!

Just thought I'd share because google was totally confused.  Hopefully this will straighten things out.
