Two GDM issues with F16

Issue 1: I installed KDE, but gdm does lot it as an option for me to log into at the login screen

Issue 2: There is no default user at the GDM screen when I boot F16. I get an option for "not on the list" that I can click and then enter my username.

Google has come up empty for solutions to both of those.

Ok, I fixed the KDE issue. I went to install another package and yum said I had an incomplete install. I completed the install and it installed the rest of KDE. Not sure why it didn't complete the first time??

Re: Two GDM issues with F16

for issue #2, did you set the uid of your user account to something under 1000? if so, that's why it doesn't show up; gdm considers it a system account if it's under 1000.
