Enlightement can't run

My default runlevel is 3, so I run X with kdm. There is a login manager that asks me which window manager to load. There are a lot of managers - the slack 9, full instalation. If I try Enl. the screen spashes and the X server restarts. Where the errorr could be?

I don't have Enl. in xwmconfig, but I have it in the login manager in kdm.. is that strange?

That's probably KDM default configuration's fault.

If you want to use Enlightenment you will have to install it yourself.

And if you wanna edit which Window managers appear on the KDM combobox, edit (as root) /opt/kde/share/config/kdm/Xsession
