    Oh yeah...forgot about that one. :blush:
    Out of curiosity (from a non-Slacker) why is that?
    Actually even as a slacker I have often wondered why Patrick made multi-user with X runlevel 4 instead of the defacto standard 5

    The only place gdm appears in my inittab is in the comment describing runlevel 4, and I still can't get it to use the kde login screen

    However, if I start in runlevel 3, lgin as root, and run "kdm" then the kde login screen appears, this is what i want to happen normally

    If it would help, i could post my inittab

    I already told you how to do this. See? I'll show you.

    Also, /etc/rc.d/rc.4 starts the display manager. It looks for GDM first. If you have GDM installed but want to use KDM as your display manager, you need to comment out the lines that refer to GDM.
    You need to edit /etc/rc.d/rc.4
    cd /etc/rc.d
    mcedit rc.4
    and comment out the lines regarding GDM.
    OH NOOOOO!!!!!! You did it the way I said?

    Oops, sorry... I thought I was supposed to comment GDM from inittab

    edit: works fine!
