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):
Steps to Reproduce:
Actual Results: Nothing, the variable is not in use anymore
Expected Results: Should be able to change the Display Manager/Desktop
This was intentional.
