Is there a way to lock the users preferred current config so they do
not have to go to "alternatives" and change the setting back after
some updates?

After the first time you change the alternative, it is set to 'manual'
mode and won't be affected by any future changes from the package
manager

e.g.:

# update-alternatives --display default-displaymanager
default-displaymanager - auto mode

=> I'm running in auto-mode

If you use

# update-alternatives --config default-displaymanager

and pick the one you want to use, the mode will be switched and no
longer be changed for you
Thanks. I made my changes through alternatives in yast when the DM was changed
automatically from kdm to sddm a while ago. I can't remember for sure but when
i changed it back then I presume it should have set it to manual so in theory
it shouldn't have changed this time. I'll keep an eye on it as I now have DM
and postgresql on manual via Yast.

Cheers
Dominique
