gdm and KDE 3.4

Hello.. I am using kde 3.4 but I prefer the gnome display manager for logins. Since I upgraded to kde 3.4 gdm hasn't allowed me to login to kde, the session type is simply not there. Is there any way to resolve this problem painlessly and how could I add kde session type to gdm? Any help would be greatly appreciated...

Have a look at this:

How do I add new GDM sessions?

That's specific to FreeBSD, though, so the paths given (/usr/X11R6/etc/dm/Sessions & /usr/local/bin/startkde) may need to be modified to suit your setup.

Tank's for the reply, but I have gone over my system Suse 9.2 and the setup seems to be totally different from BSD..Guess I,ll just wait for the next kde packages to become available, hopefully this will be fixed in them.
