xdm and twm
I installed Gentoo Stage 3 on a friends machine.
He wanted to be able to login to X by default. So I set the inittab file to boot to runlevel 5 and did
rc-update add xdm default
Now whenever the machine boots, it will only bring up twm, no kde. No option for which session to choose from. At least not that I can see.
KDE and Xfce4 are installed.
So I edited inittab, set it to boot to runlevel 3.
Created a .xinitrc file, put "exec startkde".
But it still boots to runlevel 5 and TWM.
So I did
rc-update del xdm default
Now it will boot to command-line and if I use "startx", KDE will start up.
Does anybody know how I can get this to boot to runlevel and KDE?How to know if you are a geek.
