    Default Switching to gdm

    hi all
    i want use gdm
    Switching to KDM

    If you're switching to KDE you may want to switch to the KDE login manager (or display manager) KDM too.
    Edit the file /etc/sysconfig/displaymanager and set DISPLAYMANAGER="kdm"
    Or use YaST /etc/sysconfig/ Editor, and select KDM under Desktop -> Display manager -> DISPLAYMANAGER
    http://en.opensuse.org/SDB:KDE_install

    use this ?

    : Edit the file /etc/sysconfig/displaymanager and set DISPLAYMANAGER=" gdm" ???????????/

    Yes, that works. But ...

    first make sure that "gdm" is actually installed.

    Then edit the indicated file. The variable is likely set to "kdm" so that's a one-letter change.

    You will get "gdm" on reboot. Or, if you want to hurry it up, you could do:

    Code:
    # telinit 3
    # telinit 5
    I suggest a several second pause between those. The first shuts down the desktop. The second restarts it.
