Description Arlo 2004-03-07 21:41:33 UTC
I'm using the entrance X login manager.  I insert DISPLAYMANAGER="entrance"
At boot I get:
which: no entranced in 

entranced is at /usr/local/sbin/entranced, which is in the PATH searched by which at this point.

After not finding entranced,xdm will boot the ugly default X display manager.

If I simply switch to a VT and log-in with root and do:
'/etc/init.d/xdm restart'
Entrance will start fine.

I don't understand why entranced is not found at the first start of xdm but is found when I restart xdm.

Reproducible: Always
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Install Entrance
2. Set rc.conf DISPLAYMANAGER="entrance"
3. Reboot.

Actual Results:  
which displays warning.
Default X display manager starts.

Expected Results:  
Started entrance.

It works at this point, I'm not sure what the problem was.  Somewhere along with all the system changes I've made it was fixed.
