Switch from gdm to kdm
 
How do I switch from gdm to kdm?

The startup script for run level 4 is /etc/rc.d/rc.4. Switch the order of the lines to load kdm first instead of gdm.

Well, I like sunflower-seeds, but not looking at the sunflower in my login screen. :D Heh, heh!

I think what got to me was the fact that I could not find a way to shutdown my system. I ended up going into KDE, starting a console session, and typing shutdown -h now. Yikes!

I already set the inittab back to default CLI mode. That way next time I use my puter it doesn't sunflower me. HEh, heh! Seriously, tho. I need to have more options at the login screen. Other than choosing the window manager and what language to use. ;)

OH there is an option in the gdm configure where u can turn on the system commands. Just go into gnome and look for configure gdm or something like that..on my gdm i can restart and shutdown ;)

Got kdm in there!

I opened /etc/rc.d/rc4.d(?) and commented out the gdm lines. :)

Life is great again!
