It's a deprecated option. At this point, just install wdm (and remove the others) and the right thing happens.
Comment 2 Bill Nottingham 2010-06-29 11:17:31 EDT
Clarified in http://git.fedorahosted.org/git/?p=initscripts.git;a=commitdiff&h=45532a7c521cd93a98307aa26aaad147c0f6ce87 and the following commit
Comment 3 Kevin Kofler 2010-06-29 11:32:11 EDT
It doesn't make sense to deprecate this option. Users may have more than one DM installed for whatever reason and still want to be able to set the default. Configuring your system by installing or removing packages is not that great an idea.
Comment 4 Bill Nottingham 2010-06-29 11:45:26 EDT
Perhaps 'deprecated' isn't the right word. But it shouldn't need to be set in normal operation.

That makes sense. With "deprecated" it looks like the support is completely removed. Could you change it in documentation? Thanks.

This should be fixed.
