I'm tired of GNOME's problems with my Fedora 18 instance, and decided to move on to another desktop environment. After successfully changing to Xfce, I still couldn't get rid of GDM which annoys me a lot: it is super slow and slows down my boot time by 2 seconds, sometimes more.
I have installed slim but just installing didn't change anything. After searching thoroughly through Google, the only solution I found was to edit the file
/etc/sysconfig/desktop but it doesn't work. The file doesn't even exist. Either way, I created it and edited as it was told (
DISPLAYMANAGER="SLIM") and... it doesn't work.
Other websites told to edit
/etc/X11/prefdm file but guess what? This doesn't exist too. And now I'm getting afraid of changing and creating such files, as I have already rendered my system unbootable more than 10 times this year.
I'm out of ideas to make it happen, how can I replace the shitty GDM with SLiM?
