Hello all,

I'm running K12LTSP 5.0 on my test box and I'm trying to got Autologin to 
work. I've looked at serveral postings on this but I cannot seem to get it to 


Two things that bother me.

1 I edit the /etc/sysconfig/desktop file as in the second link says to but the 
file is empty. Was it suppose to be empty? I went ahead and entered:

2. Changes to the /etc/X11/xdm/kdmrc seem to have no effect. Is the system 
using the file? 

So, this leads me to determine which mode the server is using GDM, KDM, XDM 
and How do I switch from ??? to KDM? 

Now, I also tried to use GDM to autologin as describe in other posting but the 
file that they refer to does not exist, gdm.conf.

Any ideas?
