I considered that a feature, or am I doing something wrong? I switched to
gdm with my fresh installation, I can start KDE and Gnome when I pick it in
gdm, and I can start fvwm when I pick Debian. And after you used that once,
it stays as the default. Now what am I doing wrong? I really like it the way
it is (even though I don't use KDE or Gnome, but I could). It might be nicer
if there were an fvwm, or fvwm95, or whatnot selection, though. It did take
me some time figure out why fvwm would not run anymore with the fresh
install and it would be good if it was fixed (in gdm) or at least documented.
But its working for me now.
