    localhost login instead of booting into Gnome?


    I had a succesfull install with 9.2 on my laptop. It started fine for the first few times. Now when i start it up, instead of going directly to my default Gnome session, it stops at localhost login and asks for user login then password. After that, all I get is a command prompt where I can log in as root or not. How can I get it back to going directly into Gnome again? Is there something I can do at this prompt? Thanks.

    If you are signing in with gdm, as root run:
    Code:
    gdmsetup

    You can configure it to auto sign in. Run it and see.
