i'll answer you second questionfirst... YES a window manager can be a good alternative to a desktop environment, i find windowmaker especially well suited for this
in answer to your first question at the command line try
the quick and dirty way would be
when that finishes running
'echo exec wmaker > ~/.Xclients-default
then select 'default' whenever you want windowmaker
that can be a pain in the a** eventually
the more elegant way would be to put a file "WindowMaker" (or whatever you want your label to be)
with the following contents:
i wanna check out some window managers. i've downloaded the window maker rpm for fedora (WindowMaker-0.80.2-0.fdr.6.1.i386.rpm)
Hey guy, I'm hoping you can tell me where you downloaded that RPM. I was only able to find tar.gz files on the windowmaker.org website. When I try running them, none of them work. I'd like to get an RPM so that I can see if that works. If it doesn't, then I know something with my OS is not functioning properly and I'll probably have to edit a config file somewhere.
