Fix kdmrc! for KDM and frequent crash for the GDM login manager.

I don't know what is wrong with my Slackware 10.1 system.
This one is pretty old. I mean this is installed a long time back.

I have just made recent changes like changing the background etc.
But now, whenever I login, a message saying fix kdmrc! appears on my Login Screen.

Also, I tried changed the configuration files to change the default Login Manager from KDM to GDM.

But after a restart, i get a message saying The Login manager is crashing, I will try another one.

And then, after this happens, I see the Standard Greeter for GNOME, instead of Graphical Greeter.

I used to get some DCOP error messages ....(Like the ones that have been discussion for many days on the Forums...) when I used to login from the KDM login Screen.

Also, the Standard Gnome Greeter works fine out of the box.

If I were you, I'd backup my kdmrc, and extract kdmrc from the kdebase Slackware package and overwrite mine with it. Then start again on changing the background etc.
