    Question How to make choice of FVWM2 or Gnome when get into Xwindow from command line?


    I did't like Gnome,so I install FVWM2 in my Fedora 7. But some times I have to use Gnome enviroment.So I wonder how to easliy choose Gnome or FVWM2 when I use "startx" to start Xwindow under command line?
    Thanks a lot!

    edit your hidden .xinitrc file in /home/username/ and add:

    for gnome...

    Code:
    exec gnome-session
    for fvwm...

    Code:
    exec fvwm
    I'm not positive on fvwm if it's that, or fvwm2. I run the devel version, so it's fvwm-devel for me.

    If you don't have an .xinitrc file, create one using any text editor.

    I'm not sure if you'll need to remove GDM, or not.

    I didn't have hidden .xinitrc file, so I have to create it.
    Thanks! I'll try it.
