I've been using KDE as my default and want to do something with GNOME,
and cannot get it to load.

used switchdesk to change the default
verified that gnome-session is indicated in ~/.Xclients-default
verified (after removing ~/.Xclients-default and .Xclients) that
/etc/sysconfig/desktop indicates GNOME
Tried starting in runlevel 5 and selecting GNOME from the sessions
Tried starting GNOME manually by execing xinit /usr/bin/gnome-session
Verified that gnome is installed, and even reinstalled the rpm for
No matter what I do, it's always KDE that loads.
