Re: problem with gpbs

Hi again,
rereading my mail from tonight the startup sequence seems to be not too clear. 
Must have been very sleepy :-)
At the moment I start all three servers in the order gdomap - gdnc - gpbs right 
after the display manager (wdm). On the boot screen I can see the output from 
the various scripts, and see at least the beginning of my gnustep start script 
appearing _before_ switching to graphics mode. Could it be that gpbs is up and 
running way before X comes up, and that gpbs depends strongly on X? This might 
explain the behaviour.
