you could just type in "kdm" after logging in, or "gdm" and you should be able to login to any window manager installed.

Yes. Any window manager it knows about. It has all of them in there by default though so should have no problems. But it's pretty pointless to run kdm from commandline because it's not like you're "securing" it. If you logout to kdm or gdm login then all someone has to do is ctrl + alt + delete and kill's X. Yes kdm and gdm will automatically restart, but only so many times until it quites saying something like not able to keep a connection to the X server. Which is good cause being stuck in an infinite loop of kdm trying to start X when all it does is crash would suck.

why? I ran kdm right after installing slackware 10.1, and it worked excellent, I didn't find anything wrong with it, except the theme, but I changed that

Try this -- may seem stupid but --

1) as root, chmod 1777 /tmp
2) as root, chmod 1777 /var/tmp

And then, as normal user

3) startx `which startkde`

Note the back-qoutes, and 1777 - not 777.

Post back

i mentioned that because kdm did not work fine for me
it freezes on logout and u woul d see that many of them faced such problem on slack 10.1

it solved for me when i made some changes to inittab file

well i have not tried that after chaging a theme

regards
