Default /etc/sysconfig/desktop

Does anyone know why the directives in /etc/sysconfig/desktop don't work in F-15 anymore?

DISPLAYMANAGER=/usr/bin/slim-dynwm
PREFERRED=/usr/bin/startlxde

This is how it was explained in the wiki: http://wiki.lxde.org/en/Fedora

Did you check that /usr/bin/slim-dynwm is in your system?

OK - I guess you already tried to check if you could login using
DISPLAYMANAGER=/usr/sbin/lxdm instead - and get a working desktop.
The other directive was for new users to get lxde aas the preferred DE
- were you already using lxde with a different display manager? i.e.
if you had gdm and just selected lxde could you then login?

I am only just starting to play around with different DE than gnome in
f15, but so far have only switched to KDE - I may try your route
tomorrow - and check lxde at that time so I would be interested in the
solution to this issue too.

You can see that i have 3 kernel-PAE.i686. I'm afraid to remove everything does
the command you gave recognize the spaces after the first argument. What would
be the right command on my case. Is this correct:

yum remove kernel-PAE.i686 2.6.34.8-68.fc13

Thank you
