Description Tim Waugh 2000-01-26 06:29:20 EST
KDE workstation install.  At kdm, select 'GNOME' as the session type, and
log in.  You are dumped back at kdm with no explanation ("well why did it
offer me the choice then?").

It shouldn't offer session types that aren't installed.
Comment 1 Bernhard Rosenkraenzer 2000-01-26 10:13:59 EST
Any suggestions on how to do this? We'd basically have to generate them on the
fly while they're a static file. I don't see any real way to fix this (except
for, of course, rewriting kdm)
Comment 2 Tim Waugh 2000-01-26 10:24:59 EST
How about %post sections in the RPMs for (e.g.) kdebase and gnome-core to fix up
the session types list?  Or an initscript to figure out what session types are
available or something.
Comment 3 Preston Brown 2000-05-05 13:37:59 EDT
I'm going to hack KDM to understand the gdm session stuff for the next release.
Comment 4 Preston Brown 2000-09-06 17:09:31 EDT
scratch that, it would be far too much work.
