    Removing lxde

    I prefer Gnome. I installed gdm and gnome. Then I removed lxde and openbox. When booting/rebooting openbox tries to reboot, fails and shuts down X, which then immediately restarts. This is an endless loop.

    How do I set gdm as the default?

    Since the cheatcodes say
    Code:
    knoppix desktop=kde|gnome|icewm
    and you've installed gdm, I suggest trying
    Code:
    knoppix desktop=gdm
    to start with; once it's proven, I think you can use the System config in the Preferences menu to set it permanently.

    Cheers!

    Thank you for the reply. I should have said I have installed knoppix to hd. The opening screen allowing the entry of cheat codes does not come up.

    I assume that the cheat codes are stored in a file somewhere. I could possibly edit that file to "desktop=gnome" None of this may be of any use. The 6.2 cheat code wiki says that "gnome" is not a valid variable for desktop.

    I would suggest the creation of a file /etc/sysconfig/desktop with the line
    Code:
    SESSION=gnome
    /etc/init.d/knoppix-startx reads that file and uses its content to select the gnome desktop environment. Edit: I think there should be quotation marks around gnome. But how do I enter those in this forum? Every time I tried I got the HTML &"

    I find that "gnome" will work. Where are you puttiing that in, Code block like this one?
    Code:
    SESSION="gnome"
    Maybe it's okay because I'm on a Mac in Opera at the moment.

    [code]SESSION=gnome[/code|
    worked just fine without the ""
    I still seem to be using openbox however. Is there a config file I can edit to change to gdm?
