I don't see that file.

I'm sorry--at this point I'm not sure exactly what should be done. Perhaps someone else will have another idea.

Thank you for your input. Last think I tried before stopping last night was to change:

HEED_DEFAULT_DISPLAY_MANAGER=true

to

HEED_DEFAULT_DISPLAY_MANAGER=false

This didn't work. Any ideas?

try redoing the symlink in /etc/rc2.d
Code:
cd /etc/rc2.d
ln -s ../init.d/gdm3 S99gdm3

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.

Yes Cedric did suggest the symlink, I was just hoping that your system was configured as mine to provide full path if it was.
