I'm getting closer. I've done enough damage to cause the following screen to come up instead of the XDMCP newtork login:
No servers were defined in the configuration file and XDMCP was disabled.
This can only be a configuraion error. GDM has started a single server for you. You should log in and fix the configuration.
The thing is, I can't find where to fix something. I think this occurs before it even get's to GNOME, but as I'm really new at this, I could be wrong. So at this point, I can log in locally, but I can't get timed or automatic logins working because of the above problem.
Tyr_7BE: If I change to KDE will I retain all my system installs (like mySQL, etc?) And I see in yast that I can add KDE but should I add the whole package? Seems like overkill, but I don't know.
Compunuts: I don't have a /etc/X11/default-display-manager file, and the gdm seems to be located at /etc/opt/gnome/gdm, and in it there doesn't seem to be any XDMCP enabled.
Thanks again for your continued help!!!!
