post back if you don't find anything -- though chances are you will. it pays to learn self-sufficiency asap, though.

if you still stuck, edit you /etc/inittab and change to the appropriate runlevel.

I think it will be somting like:

id:4:initdefault:

I'm not 100% though, maybe someone can confirm.

...Longinus had to ask how to start X....I don't think you can just tell them to go and edit a file....
Also, just incase you get a ton of search results, and with keywords such as that you should, all you need to do is click on the kde button in the bottom left corner and then settings>Control Center(or something like that)>Administrative options>Then hopefully you can find it inside of there under login or something to that effect. Sorry that I can't be very in-depth, I'm on a windows box at work.

Also, some basic newbie tips:
You're running as root right? Don't, I know there isn't that much of a risk to most users if they run under root but it is rather nice to have your own name and your own EVERYTHING if you have more then one user, and it will protect you from almost every linux virus there is, as few as there are.

To make a new user:
Click KDE button>system>User *something or rather*> in the dialog click add user and then Enter your information.

kde-look.org

You will want to use that site if you are just a user because it will make your desktop so much nicer.

If you ever need help feel free to IM me at:
AIM: onemessedupjedi
Yahoonemessedupjedi
MSN: onemessedupjedi@hotmail.com(once I get aMSN installed once again)
As you can tell, I change my name a lot

Good luck with your learnins

thanks guys

i got it working
in slackware you change the /etc/inttab's

Runlevel to 4

then you go to the /etc/rc/rc.d/rc.4

you will see three if statements the second one will be KDM then all you do is cut that if statement and paste it before the gnome if statement (gnome is first be default)

and its all done

and Onemessedupjedi ill be sure to im you if i need any help

once again thanks guys
