Default GDM Problems

I have installed the base 4.7 system, plus the necessary Gnome packages for a functional desktop.

When I boot the system, the GDM login box appears - but wont allow me to type any thing in.

I must click on remote login via xdmcp - click cancel and then go back to the main GDM login screen. I can then type in my login information.

When I do login with GDM - this does not directly bring me to the Gnome Desktop, it brings me to the fvwm window manager with a xterm box. I must type gnome-session using xterm to open the Gnome Desktop.

Once I do arrive at the Gnome Desktop, it is not using Metacity - it is using fvwm.

I installed the amd64 version of OpenBSD 4.7 on a Gateway laptop.

I have updated the /etc/rc.local file.

I would greatly appreciate any help solving this problem.
