Either we have to fix this or

I pin-pointed the problem in the final comment. This was in 11.2 as
Thanks Roger, Lars, Will,
Sorry for the delay. Just got back from a 'family trip', not in any way to be
confused with the term 'vacation.' The two are separate and distinct and in no
way relate or resemble one another. :-)
I'm glad to see I'm not crazy and there was a bit of a gotcha in the code.
hardwire everything for kdm4, confirm and report back.
The bug is in specifying 'kdm' as the displaymanager in sysconfig. While from
11.0 on, 'kdm' defaulted to kdm4 and to use kde3 kdm you had to manually specify
kdm3, for some reason in 11.3 that logic was mucked up so that simply specifying
'kdm' defaulted to an empty-string being selected as the DM defaulting to the
plain old xdm greeter. I have confirmed that specifying kdm4 explicitly will
give you the kde4 kdm greeter. So for 11.3 the current state of things in
sysconfig for specifying your display manager under
/etc/sysconfig/displaymanager is as follows:
kdm3 -> kde3 kdm & greeter
kdm -> xdm & greeter
kdm4 -> kde4 kdm & greeter
So the code needs to be fixed so that 'kdm' gives you the 'kde4 kdm'
as it has
done since 11.0 up until now....
