I installed CDE 2.3.1 on 64-bit FreeBSD 12.1 on my laptop. The installation worked well.
After I start CDE and type my name and password correctly, the screen becomes black and it returns to the login screen and same thing happens again. What should I do?

Hi,

Never used CDE but I'd check the logs, /var/log/Xorg.0.log and the other usual suspects.

when i use the combinations, nothing is happening (Ctrl, Alt, F2)
Im stuck in the login screen to type my username and password, after i did it correctly, it loads cde again and i must type my pw and username again and again.🤷🏻‍♂️

Since you are on a laptop I assume that you have to press some FN (Function) key to activate the F1-10 keys. Perhaps something like FN-CTRL-ALT-F2 ?

Regarding dtlogin: When you have access to a shell, either through single user mode or key combination, check out if you have ksh93 (/usr/local/bin/ksh93) installed. If not install it.

Also, check out if inetd and rpcbind is running and that you have the following entries in /etc/inetd.conf

Code:
dtspc   stream  tcp4    nowait  root    /usr/local/dt/bin/dtspcd /usr/local/dt/bin/dtspcd
cmsd/2-5    dgram rpc/udp4 wait root /usr/local/dt/bin/rpc.cmsd rpc.cmsd

If they are not running add the following to /etc/rc.conf

Code:
inetd_enable="YES"
rpcbind_enable="YES"

Then start the daemons.

Code:
# service inetd start
# service rpcbind start


After that, test if everything is working.

Code:
# /usr/local/dt/bin/dtlogin -nodaemon

Slightly off-topic, but correct if I'm wrong, but isn't CDE still "unsafe" to use?
