[opensuse] Documentation on using an alternate display manager like xdm or fvwm
The released notes says the setting up the use of an alternate display manager has mover from /etc/sysconfig to the alternatives system. I can't locate documentation on that.

The release notes says to use update-alternatives to Set Login Manager and Desktop Session. That is only thing I see in the release notes. I do not know what "To enable graphical management of alternatives, use the YaST module Alternatives" is going to do, and to what files. There is an example there used to switch the default-displaymanager to xdm:

sudo update-alternatives --set default-displaymanager \
/usr/lib/X11/displaymanagers/xdm

Login manager: default-displaymanager

I have used fvwm2 in the past and would like to use it again. I tried to enable fvwm in the startup window present after booting, before logging on, but nothing worked. I am just looking for documentation now. My current Leap 15 system is pretty lame, so the docs may be in /usr/share, which I am currently not able to confirm.
