Gnome/KDE defaults
I installed RH 7.3 with both gnome and kde installed. Gnome comes up as the default. How can I change it to KDE as the default? I am guessing edit something in /etc/X11?

I believe its in your Login Manager or user setup. Just a guess tho.

but I am looking for the file to change, don't want to do it from the GUI, thanks though!

At the command line, type "switchdesk" to get a selection window of KDE / Gnome.

I think the file is ~/.Xclients-default
You need

exec gnome-session

exec startkde
(I think) for gnome or kde respectively.

I hope this helps
