My "/etc/X11/default-display-manager" simply points to /usr/sbin/gdm3
Tried recreating the S-link, rebooted and it WORKED. At this point I'm trying to wrap my head around why?? Can you shed some light as to why recreating the S-link worked? Was it ever even there? By understanding this just a little I may avoid making this mistake at a later date. Regardless, thank you helping me correct whatever I messed up months ago.
