Do you mean display manager (GUI login screen) or window
manager/environment (wmaker vs KDE vs Icewm vs Gnome, etc)?

I'm assuming you mean display manager, since you specifically mention
"wdm". You don't indicate if another display manager is starting or not.

I suggest you try:

    dpkg-reconfigure wdm

    dpkg-reconfigure xdm


    dpkg-reconfigure gdm

Depending on what you have installed, one of these will probably let you
reset wdm as your display manager. If it's not available as a choice,
try reinstalling wdm:

    apt-get install wdm
