Gnome/KDE choice

Hi I've just installed RH9 with both GUI options. It boots to Gnome but when I used RH7 I used to get a choice but I can't find out how to change it.

Please help and thanks in advance.

Looks like you've set the gdm to autostart and login an user. In Gnome, click in >>applications>>system settings>>login screen

There you might be able to see an option at the second menu like:

"Automatically login user at boot up". (more or less)

Simply disable it .

if you dont have to type a password to login into gnome then it means that you have autologin enabled. disable it and click on the session button on the login screen.


has the necessary option to always boot into kde


should set everything to kde
