    Very pleased to have CDE running on FreeBSD 10.2--thanks so much for sharing this and providing the excellent instructions. Having CDE is so much retro fun--it's like I am back in the 90s ...notes from my configuration: 1) to enable the display, had to update /etc/hosts to include the computer name 2) to enable CDE at login after re-boot, included the following (chose this over making rc.d script) at /etc/rc.local: /usr/dt/bin/dtlogin & 3) to enable VNC, in .vnc/xstartup used the following: /usr/dt/bin/dtwm &

    I've always loved CDE's simple, clean, vintage design. Now I can run it on Debian like some kind of awesome pimp. Thanks for getting this source distro together and putting the build resources up in the wiki. Now if I can figure out how to do my part, I'd like to do a Debian-based distro with CDE as its default desktop.

    Doesn't recognize PAM at all on RHEL 6. Authenticates only with local accounts. Not a win for the enterprise community. Had to hack through to get it to compile as well.
