change startup parameters
I recently installed Slack 12 (from a live-CD, Backtrack); the installation works fine, only the configuration - well, I couldn't change anything during the install; it was basically just an image of the live-CD on the HD.
So, at the moment, the system boots in a CLI, where i have to log on and then start X manually. Also, I can start X only if I log in as root.
I checked all the files in /etc, but couldn't find any where I could change that.
Which are the files, where the startup sequence is defined, where I can 1.tell Slack to boot right away into X and more important 2. make the changes so I'll be able to log in as a user ?
(user login in CLI works fine, just X I can't start)
Thanks for any hints ...
