I already discussed in a bug report in Red Hat bugzilla many months back IIRC that was ignored and I never suggested that we change this immediately for Fedora 8. Since KDE spin already has KDM as the default, there isn't much of a chance for a regression but we can do this in the Fedora 9 branch just to be safe if that is a problem.


Or, you know, you could investigate the actual bug. Which is easily found
in both the KDE and GNOME bugzillas, where you can find out that it's because kdebase is pointing to the wrong location for the GDM fifo, and
note the one line patch in the KDE bugzilla that fixes it, apply it to
CVS, and build it.

Let me repeat. I discussed this in bugzilla before and it was ignored despite being a long standing issue and there are more differences in between KDM and GDM than merely this and KDM is always going to work better with KDE and similarly, GDM with GNOME. You are forcing GDM to be the default for KDE unnecessarily even though, this is not the case for the KDE spin.
