WindowMaker not running on Redhat 9


I downloaded WindowMaker from fedora.us using apt. I also managed to install it. However, whenever I type wmaker at the shell prompt, I get a fatal error saying another window manager is already running. I am running gnome and don't have any other windows (except the terminal) open.
Could someone please help me with this?
Thanks.

Try this

change your session desktop environment when logging in GDM.
Choose `Failsafe' and proceed
A terminal will be shown without any window manager
now type `wmaker &' and that's it.

If you didn't find the `Failsafe' session then you have to add the window maker session entry to the GDM. If you wish to do this check these links 1 2

Good Luck

Thanks Bestofmed,
I tried out your suggestion and it works. Didn't find anything much in WindowMaker though. Thanks all the same.
