[K12OSN] Total loss! Why the gray screen again?


I'll keep this brief - I had my test client connecting and working fine. But now
it will not get past the gray screen. I've been reading online to see and have
tried the following:

1) netstat -anp | grep ":177 "
udp        0      0   *
So something is listening

2) ps -e | grep " .dm"
 4070 ?        00:00:00 gdm-binary
 4118 ?        00:00:00 gdm-binary
So we have a display manager running (is it a problem if it is running twice?)

3) in /opt/ltsp/i386/etc/lts.conf variable SERVER is set to  Just
to make extra-sure, I added XDM_SERVER and set it to the same address

4) iptables -L
Chain INPUT (policy ACCEPT)
target     prot opt source               destination
Chain FORWARD (policy ACCEPT)
target     prot opt source               destination
Chain OUTPUT (policy ACCEPT)
target     prot opt source               destination

So everything is going through. As well, ipchains is not running

5) The workstation is running on a monitor that can easily handle the resolution
that X hands it, since it was running before!  The workstation also has a PS/2 2
button mouse and regular keyboard.  It is a Compaq deskpro with 64 RAM. I
believe it is a Cirrus video chipset. I've checked and that is all set correctly
in lts.conf as follows:

# In the Compaq deskpro with 64 M Ram

	XSERVER = auto
#	X_MODE_0 = 640x480  31.5 640  664  704  832  480 489 492 520 +hsync +vsync
#	X_MODE_1 = 800x600  40   800  840  968  1056 600 601 605 628 +hsync +vsync
#	X_MODE_2 = 1024x768 44.9 1024 1048 1208 1264 768 776 784 817 interlace

	X_MOUSE_DEVICE		= "/dev/psaux"

The workstation just loads with the gray screen, and the mouse cursor, which
moves no problem if you move the mouse. I have tried both with the X_MODE_0 line
commented and uncommented.  Watching tail -f /var/log/messages shows nothing -
just that it switched to runlevel 5 and that's it.

ANY help is greatly appreciated! I know it can work on this machine because it
did before.

Thanks very much,
