/etc/sysconfig/displaymanager: YaST is simplifying and default things like DMs are easier picked on a prioritization list based on installed packages. Since the ‘Desktop selection’ had been reworked majorly, YaST had a hard time guessing what the right value might be.
Is there any information on how this is going to be handled now?
Ups - of course; that casual reader here might have missed the long discussion in the last 2 days.
The 'default' is chosen by means of update-alternatives. The various DMs installed register themselves as options (with a priority for auto mode)
As a user, you have these options to reconfigure your choice:
update-alternatives --config default-displaymanager
This will give you a CLI interface where you can just pick your choice out of the registered options
in Yast, Miscellaneous, Alternatives (install yast2-alternatives if
missing) Pretty much the same as using the command above, but presented by YaST
