System: NetBSD 4.0.1 NetBSD 4.0.1 (GENERIC.MP) #0: Tue Oct 7 23:15:59 PDT 2008 builds@wb30:/home/builds/ab/netbsd-4-0-1-RELEASE/i386/200810080053Z-obj/home/builds/ab/netbsd-4-0-1-RELEASE/src/sys/arch/i386/compile/GENERIC.MP i386

	xdm allows running a setup script that prepares the X server for xdm login.
However, this script is run after the greeter is started, and if the resolution changes as a result of running this script the greeter may be placed offscreen.

For example if I put a command for rotating the screen into this script the greeter is no longer centered on the screen.

	Note: you may need to change the output name in the command below
	echo xrandr --output TMDS-1 --rotate right >> /usr/pkg/lib/X11/xdm/Xsetup_0
	kill the X server for screen 0 managed by xdm
