No. No other changes.
I can send install.log and yum.log. Let me know
Update: today I ran
- yum distro-sync full
(had to remove autocorr-en and its dependencies because they came from
updates-testing and otherwise the command didn't complete)
- disable updates-testing repo
- yum update
And I think I'm now at RC4.
Now kdm starts correctly and I'm able to drop down the "session type"
and choose the "KDE plasma workspace" and able to login.
Switching to console is correct too; no further garbage in ttys
screens as before. Thanks
I can start form scratch the install from vmlinuz+initrd from rc4 an
retest the cycle...
At this moment I manually created the classic /etc/sysconfig/desktop file.
Is this supposed to be obsoleted now? And installation correctly care
of defaulting to kdm when selected KDE, de-selected GNOME?
