From the desktop guide, code 14 rc-update add xdm default. I tried this about 2 days ago and when I rebooted it sent me to the xdm but from there I couldn't get anywhere not to kde not back to the shell. I want to know if I put rc-update add gdm (or kdm) default that when I reboot it will come up to that.

Thanks

You have to change your [x|g|k]dm in the file /etc/rc.conf but still do rc-update add xdm default (not gdm or kdm!)

Hi,

In /etc/rc.conf uncomment the following:
Code:
# What display manager do you use ?  [ xdm | gdm | kdm ]
DISPLAYMANAGER=kdm
