attached mail follows:

My first message is:

> i want to see xconsole on my screen before i log.
> i try to modify
> /etc/dt/config/Xsetup to add xconsole, but this window doesn't appear on
> screen until i login!
> Anyone has done something like that?

i receive no response from the list but sun hotline says me:
in /etc/dt/config/Xsetup, add this line:

( sleep 10; /usr/openwin/bin/xconsole -geometry 480x130-0-0 -daemon
-notify -verbose -fn fixed -exitOnFail )&

and in /etc/dt/config/Xconfig, uncomment:
Dtlogin*grabServer: False

for me, it works, on solaris 7.
