You have all of KDE already installed. Simply log out and select KDE on the
kdm selector and log back in. gdm should also give you that option.
If it doesn't work, then try this:
edit or create the file /etc/sysconfig/dekstop and have only these lines in
Make sure to run:
restorecon -v '/etc/sysconfig/desktop'
after editing, so that there will be no problems with selinux. Both editing
the file and running restorecon must be done as root.
What this file does is to switch your system from using gdm to using kdm.
Then, also make sure you have this file in /home/yourusername/.dmrc. It
contains only these lines:
Since this is in your directory, you don't need to be root to edit the file.
Now, reboot the system and allow it to use kdm to log in. You will see a
selector that allows you to choose kde or gnome.
To return back to your former setup, reverse these changes.
