No symlink needed here. Just put the right strings into displaymanager:

Not sure. My impression was that search for DISPLAYMANAGER is done in
/usr/bin. Until I defined symlink, the default DM (icewm?) was
started. Maybe it is possible to define full path for DISPLAYMANAGER,
I did not try that. IIRC (I am not near my setup now), kdm for KDE3 is
/opt/kde3/bin/kdm (not kdm3), so even if the PATH search is used to
find DM, it would not help. ("which kdm3" returned nothing on my
system).

# grep kdm3 /etc/sysconfig/displ*
DISPLAYMANAGER="kdm3"
# which kdm
/opt/kde3/bin/kdm
# which kdm3
which: no kdm3 in
(/sbin:/usr/sbin:/usr/local/sbin:/root/bin:/usr/local/bin:/usr/bin:/bin:/us
r/bin/X11:/usr/games:/opt/kde3/bin) # ps -A | grep kdm
 1660 ?        00:00:00 kdm
 1678 ?        00:00:00 kdm
# ll /usr/bin/kd*
lrwxrwxrwx 1 root root 22 Dec 10 01:21 /usr/bin/kde ->
/opt/kde3/bin/startkde # set | grep MANA
WINDOWMANAGER=/opt/kde3/bin/startkde
# set | grep PLAY
DISPLAY=:0

So the module being used is /opt/kde3/bin/kdm, but
/opt/kde/bin/startkde
looks inside it for 'kdm3'? No wonder this stuff confuses me. Thanks; I'll
give that a try.
