Hi,
Gentoo allways starts xdm when starting my KDE-Runlevel. But I'd like to use kdm instead. The Script xdm checks the Environmentvariable $DISPLAYMANAGER and chooses the program to start.
How do I change te environmentvariable before the Script runs? I tried to change the file /etc/profile.env but this file seems to be created everytime Gentoo boots.

I've done this, and it still comes up with xdm. Anyone else care to try? (1.3)

dufnutz is right, and this is explained in the desktop guide. Have you edited any important system or configuration files?
