Hey guys,  I wanna play some video games.. I've got steam installed, bumblebee is in there, everything is compiled and updated... but when I add bumblebee to rc it yells at me for not having xdm. 


Is there a way to configure xdm to satisfy bumblebee/vgl without changing the way I log in?


(if you need errors/logs just ask :))

Edit /etc/conf.d/xdm to use the prefered display manager (KDM, GDM, LightDM, etc.), add the service to the default level:

rc-update add xdm default

It also must be started. And add your user to the bumblebee group.

Everything must be work fine.
