Description Thorsten Stärk 2004-09-28 10:58:57 EDT
From Bugzilla Helper:
User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; Linux i686; de-AT; rv:1.4.2)

Description of problem:
I have fc3 test3 installed, without gnome and with kde.
When logging in (graphically), I can chose to take kde as window mgr.
But this setting is not remembered by fedora after restart of X Server.

I hope this is the right component, could not find component "display
manager" (please update).

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1.install fc3test3 without gnome and with kde
2.log in using kde as session type
3.log out

Actual Results:  preset session type is not kde

Expected Results:  preset session type is kde

The bug is not only related for installations without gnome and with kde.
I installed fc3 test3 with gnome and xfce and without kde and I can
not set xfce as default.
The bug is also present in fc3 rc1.

This sounds like a dup of bug 140677
Comment 4 Thorsten Stärk 2004-11-29 05:10:24 EST
this is not a duplicate of bug 140677, bug 140677 talks about the 
installer, I talk about the display manager.

I swear I've seen something else about this in bugzilla... 
(roots around a bit)
Ok it's a forward reference but I think it's worth mentioning here bug #142260
Comment 8 Matthew Miller 2006-07-10 19:36:18 EDT
Fedora Core 3 is now maintained by the Fedora Legacy project for security
updates only. If this problem is a security issue, please reopen and
reassign to the Fedora Legacy product. If it is not a security issue and
hasn't been resolved in the current FC5 updates or in the FC6 test
release, reopen and change the version to match.

Thank you!
