That is my new project for awhile then.
login [pam] -- I fail. I don't know why there has to be a daemon for login.
-csh -- I fail. Looks like a vararg or parameter or flag, not a process.
/bin/sh /usr/local/bin/startx -- I sort of get this, but am wondering I need
to be logged in as root if this computer is its own server, window manager
with its own clients.
oh, wait...ps -auxww... it's coming back to me. My first Unix (is it
properly UNIX?) was Solaris.
I hope I'm not part of BOINK yet.
