That file contains all the preferences/settings for KDM.  Have fun.


1. Respawning XDM (or kdm) problem


After installing an incompete version of the KDE desktop manager on my
RedHat 4.2 system I had a problem when rebooting because I automatically
to init level 5 which kicks off kdm (KDE version of xdm), the kdm
gets respawned, crashes, gets respawned etc etc which results in a
flashing monitor.

I cannot get to a text tty using Ctrl-Alt-F1, F2, F3 etc and when I
tried to
boot from floppy using the rescue option, there were no entries in the
/dev directory for the hard disk partitions.

Any ideas on how to fix this problem ?  Please send them to
