I installed XFree86 4.3.0 and died
i decided that i wanted the newwest version of xfree86, the first time i tried to do this i broke my system beyond repair (really.). So i reformated my system wih redhat 8, and this time instead of just installing the newest release of xfree and ignoring the "it is strongly recommended that you backup..." message i moced to runlevel three, rename /etc/X11, /etc/fonts, and /usr/X11R6 to "the same names".old, so i had a backup of my old xfree
then, i installed the newest version as a fresh install, there was nothing to overwwrite 'cause it was all in the .old directories then i typed startx, to my surprise, it didn't work, i found out it was because i had no "XFree86Config" file i figured that was okay, so i installed the newest version of the firegl drivers from ati (for my radeon 9600) i did the /sbin/telinit 5 thing and it strted up with a gnome login. that would be okay, except i never installed gnome, i installed kde, and my normal login is the redhat thing that looks all pretty. can anyone tell me how to get back to kde and the normal login thing?
that would be greatly appreciated, thanks in advance
