I have just installed 11.1 and everything went smothly (well, after
several retries).

However after updating and installing several more progs the login
with kdm doesn't work. If I do an init 3 and start gdm it works fine.
At the moment I have my main user autlogin so the problem isn't urgent.

But what I need is info on how to switch from kdm to gdm as the login
manager.

Caisa

In /etc/sysconfig/displaymanager change

DISPLAYMANAGER="kdm"

to

DISPLAYMANAGER="gdm"

That should do the trick.

Why would KDE not work for you?

Boris.
