Question Well I got a error that kind of makes sence.

Code:
GDM (The GNOME Display Manager Manager) is not running.

You might in fact be using a different display manager, such as KDM (KDE Display Manager) or xdm. If you still wish to use this feature, either start GMD yourself or ask your system administrator to start GDM.
Well I get that error. I think its not installed. cause I picked KDE.

Were is that RPM file for the i368?

It looks as if you need to reset your display manager; there is a file under /etc/system-config that allows doing so (I forget the details but I'm sure you'll be able to figure them out). All you have to do is open the relevant file that has a DISPLAYMANAGER="" line and put in KDM or GDM as your preferred display manager.
