Re: Suggestion - replace gdm with kdm as the default

If you want to run kdm instead od gdm do the following at a console login
(ctl-alt-f1) after logging in as root

mv /usr/sbin/gdm /usr/sbin/gdm.orig
init 3
init 5

This will start kdm.  The file to look at is /etc/X11/perfdm which is just a
shell script that starts the appropriate display manager

That's /etc/X11/prefdm and what Paolo is suggesting is way too drastic.
The "correct" way to do it is to edit (or create) /etc/sysconfig/desktop
and change (or create) the "DISPLAYMANAGER" variable and set it to KDE:

	DISPLAYMANGER=KDE

Then restart X as you normally would.  If the /etc/sysconfig/desktop
file does NOT exist, then the following managers are tried in order:

	gdm
	kdm
	wdm
	xdm
