Default boot-up batch file

what is the file that tells the boot process which gui to run? I installed a new kernel, and it changed me to KDE from Gnome, which I liked better. is there a man page or suchlike that would tell me how to edit it without messing myself up?

Default

I'm certain that this varies between distros, but with SUSE 10 it's in your /etc/sysconfig/windowmanager file. The pertinent lines are:
Code:
# Here you can set the default window manager (kde, fvwm, ...)
# changes here require at least a re-login
DEFAULT_WM="gnome"
There's no "switchdesk" command in SUSE like there is in Fedora/RH, but off hand I can't tell you which file the switchdesk command in Fedora modifies. Poke around your system and remember that "grep" is your friend.

HTH,

Jim
