I installed Slackware as a VM within Virtual Box. Host is Windows 7, if it matters. I have successfully installed guest additions and XFCE starts and runs cleanly with or without the guest additions. KDE however (which was set as the default for
startx) starts well giving me the appropriate desktop at the appropriate resolution but crashes halfway during the splashscreen animation. I am not sure it is worth wrestling with it.
How do I change the default for
startx to xfce? I realize that I can always start it at the command line with
startxfce4 at the command line but I may like to change the inittab run level to 5 which would trigger KDE with it's crashes.
