    Step one make sure you select KDE as your default window manager

    You can do this by
    Code:
    xwmconfig
    select KDE.

    Then, cd to /etc
    Code:
    cd /etc
    Use a text editor you are comfortable with to edit inittab e.g.;
    Code:
    emacs inittab
    And you will see the following;
    Code:
    #
    # inittab       This file describes how the INIT process should set up
    #               the system in a certain run-level.
    #
    # Version:      @(#)inittab             2.04    17/05/93        MvS
    #                                       2.10    02/10/95        PV
    #                                       3.00    02/06/1999      PV
    #                                       4.00    04/10/2002      PV

    # These are the default runlevels in Slackware:
    #   0 = halt
    #   1 = single user mode
    #   2 = unused (but configured the same as runlevel 3)
    #   3 = multiuser mode (default Slackware runlevel)
    #   4 = X11 with KDM/GDM/XDM (session managers)
    #   5 = unused (but configured the same as runlevel 3)
    #   6 = reboot
    
    # Default runlevel. (Do not set to 0 or 6)
    id:3:initdefault:
    (snip)
    Change
    Code:
    id:3:initdefault:
    to
    Code:
    id:4:initdefault:
    Before doing this, make sure your xwindow starts without problem. Meaning, when you issue startx, KDE will start without a fuss. :) Good luck.
