Thank you very much again, Andy.

I would like to apologize for asking yet two further questions, before I turn my attention to the forking bomb.

Using your instructions/suggestions, the machine starts without a login prompt, but I would like otherwise. How can this be changed? Are there new security issues if .bash_profile executes xinitrc or startx?

The second question is not a priority. Lxpanel starts displaying the wrong keyboard layout (I mentioned above not knowing how the right one appeared). It is sufficient to open a terminal in X and hit "Enter" for lxpanel keyboard selector switch to the right layout, but starting, for example, firefox, does not do the trick. Any ideas?

Just for the record, I write what follows.

I spent almost two days trying to figure out why lxpanel on LFS6.5 was not showing menus, blaming myself for some mistake when switching off the use of LXDM. Some instants ago, after reinstalling lxmenu-data-0.1.2, menus are working again.
