Are you doing this with KNOPPIX running as a lived CD? When I boot KNOPPIX 5.1.1 (as a live CD) neither xdm
knoppix@Knoppix:~$ ps -ef | grep -i dm
knoppix 4073 4051 0 02:31 pts/1 00:00:00 grep --colour=auto -i dm
/etc/init.d/kdm exists but /etc/init.d/gdm does not. If I run
invoke-rc.d kdm start
it claims to start kdm
and repeating the above command then shows it running although I don't see anything different on the diskplay. Then running
invoke-rc.d kdm stop
stops it. Of course, trying the same thing with xdm
simply causes an error since /etc/init.d/xdm does not exist.
