Re: Starting Garnome

I have Mandrake 8.2 running as well. I dug into the scripts and figured
out how they worked together. The attached tarball includes two files,
you can just drop into the file-system as is. It should then give you a
session from either gdm or kdm. It even works with my gdm2. :-)

I still have the problem my last session isn't remembered correctly, but
that doesn't seem to be caused by the files in the tarball. 

I hope this works for you as well!
