    [SOLVED] RHEL 6 Change default desktop


    Hello all! I'm trying to change the desktop to KDE so that it's persistent across boots. I did the usual thing of adding /etc/sysconfig/desktop and adding the appropriate parameters, but for whatever reason, whenever I reboot, it still loads Gnome.

    Now here's where it gets annoying: I can switch to runlevel 3, type startx, and then it will read /etc/sysconfig/desktop and load KDE properly.

    I've been banging my head against a wall over this one. Where is the call made to start gdm?

    I think I'll probably wind up changing the default runlevel to 3, but I'm still curious as to why those scripts are not executed on boot.

    Oh, nevermind... I made the dumb mistake of forgetting to install the display manager as well.
