Description Steve McQuillin 2003-05-01 11:36:01 EDT
From Bugzilla Helper:
User-Agent: Mozilla/4.0 (compatible; MSIE 5.01; Windows NT 5.0)

Description of problem:
The version of /etc/X11/prefdm no longer references the DESKTOP
variable (it did on 7.3 - the only other version I can check against).

File /etc/sysconfig/desktop should now set the DISPLAYMANAGER variable so the 
sysadmin can set their preference without modifying the start up scripts.

/etc/sysconfig/desktop is not part of an RPM therefore I couldn't identify the 

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

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1.Modify /etc/sysconfig/desktop
2.Restart X
3.No change

Actual Results:  Nothing, the variable is not in use anymore

Expected Results:  Should be able to change the Display Manager/Desktop

This was intentional.
