Session Manager


Okay.... I got slackware up. I edited /etc/inittab

Code:
# Default runlevel. (Do not set to 0 or 6)
id:4:initdefault:

# These are the standard console login getties in multiuser mode:
c1:12345:respawn:/sbin/agetty 38400 tty1 linux
c2:12345:respawn:/sbin/agetty 38400 tty2 linux
c3:12345:respawn:/sbin/agetty 38400 tty3 linux
c4:12345:respawn:/sbin/agetty 38400 tty4 linux
c5:1235:respawn:/sbin/agetty 38400 tty5 linux
c6:12345:respawn:/sbin/agetty 38400 tty6 linux
rebooted and when it starts up it goes to a blue session manager with a yellow flower in the bottom right. It's ugly, I don't want any pretty flowers. I thought it would bring up the GNOME session manager, which is what I want. So.... what gives?

/etc/rc.d/rc.4 looks like this:
Code:
# Try to use GNOME's gdm session manager:
if [ -x /usr/bin/gdm ]; then
  exec /usr/bin/gdm -nodaemon
fi

# Not there?  OK, try to use KDE's kdm session manager:
if [ -x /opt/kde/bin/kdm ]; then
  exec /opt/kde/bin/kdm -nodaemon
fi

# If all you have is XDM, I guess it will have to do:
if [ -x /usr/X11R6/bin/xdm ]; then
  exec /usr/X11R6/bin/xdm -nodaemon
fi
Wheres my gdm session manager? How can I get the gmd session manager? Please explain how to do it in detail, I'm new to linux. thank you for your time.

Believe it or not that is GDM just login as root and adjust session manger preferences(under gnome) or something like that I can't remember be awhile since I used gnome or GDM.
