    startx


    I am new to slackware (again)... and I am wondering why do I have to enter startx at a prompt to bring up the gui side of slackware?
    I checked out the inittab file and things are set on multiuser number 3.
    So I thought that would get things to boot up into graphics mode. Not so.
    What is the solution??
    I am using 14.1 distribution.

    init 4 starts x. Change your inittab.
