I can't use MWM as my desktop manager using autoboot

Hi all,

I want to use autoboot with an specific user. I can configure the system to autoboot using an user, I can choose from a list of desktop mangers, KDE, FVMW, etc. The problem is that in this list there is not MWM. I have installed MWM, I can use it starting in text mode using the commands xinit and MWM from shell.

Anybody knows how the include in the list of desktop managers MWM, or wich file to modify for this goal.



By the way: About my last post, finally The sound card is working. There was a package missing (arts)
