fluxbox installed two times


Hi,
I love Fluxbox. It also seems to be /share/love/fluxbox.
Anyhow, I have two fluxboxes installed on my MDK9.1
fluxbox-1.1.4 and fluxbox-0.9.9
The first I installed earlier from RPM provided by MDK.
The second I compiled.

Now, the problem is that fluxbox-1.1.4 starts on boot, instead of 0.9.9.
I tried to remove 1.1.4 but as a result I could not get back to fluxbox at all.

How can I tell gdm kdm or whatever it is to use the right fluxbox executable?

Thnx

Strange!
When I boot, fluxbox-1.1.4 starts,
when I exit flux and re-start it again, fluxbox-0.9.9 comes back!
What's up?

I guess, bootup script points to the old executable, while kdm xdm or gdm (I don't know which one I am using :-) ) points to the cooler recent one.
