    You should set displaymanager to "kdm3". Also install kdebase3-session

    Hi
    Were talking about the SLE 3.5 release from Novell, as in off the
    install DVD and Novell repositories.

    I'm assuming you mean from the unsupported (by Novell)
    version from the OBS repository?

    I thought KDE3 is unavailable for SLE11. At least it is officially
    unavailable for openSUSE 11.1

    There is no difference. Either way you have to install kdebase3-session
    package.

    Hi
    SLE 11 was 3.5 and from memory KDE4 preview, SLE 11 SP1 is KDE4.x

    General support for SLE 11 ends in 2016, so a few years of 3.5 left....

    Hi all. Figured I give you an update. I tried the other steps that
    were mentioned (kdebase3-session) but still couldn't get it to work. So
    I finally broke down and opened an SR with Novell. They told me that
    KDE3 was never designed to work with SLES/SLED 11 and that even if I did
    get it to somehow work, I would likely have major issues going forward.
    So there exacts words were "we don't recommend it".

    So we're going back to the drawing board to try to figure out if we
    want to leave this CA-Unicenter software running on SLES10 or do we want
    to put it on SLES11 running Gnome (that's what I'm leaning to right
    now).

    Thanks for all the input and suggestions.

    Hi
    Thanks for the update

    Any reason you can't use SLE 10 SP4?
