    how to have x start automatically after user login?

    I have the same request for an elonex onet running 3MX 4.0:

    (I'd like to have skip the texty bits.. ie password entry and typing "startx"..)

    Here's the contents of inittab:



    tty1::respawn:/sbin/getty 38400 tty1
    tty3::respawn:/sbin/getty 38400 tty3

    ::shutdown:/bin/umount -a -r
    ::shutdown:/sbin/swapoff -a

    Any suggestions?

    Wouldn't it be easier to just use a runlevel which allows graphical logon using GDM, KDM or XDM?
