Hi folks,

After a 'base-config' and selecting kdm as the display manager, I can
enter kde by running 'startx' from command-line. Another words the
system does not come up with a gui for login. Where is the error? How
to start kdm from command-line?


Try doing a "dpkg-reconfigure kdm". Asking if you want it to be the
default login manager should be one of the questions it asks you during
that process.


I also think that kdm will not start automatically until a change in runlevel (such as rebooting), so you can start it manually with "/etc/init.d/kdm start".
