    init.d


    I'm trying to run kdm at boot, but I am not able to find init.d anywhere on my computer. I'm running Slackware 10.1. I usually thought init.d was kept /etc/rc.d/init.d, but apparently not. I also issued a find, but it didn't turn up anything. Is there something I can do to create/find the init.d file?

    edit the initdefault in /etc/inittab to 4 instead of 3

    voila xdm/gdm/kdm login


    slackware is BSD init based not System V, meaning it doesnt use the rc.1,rc.2 dirs etc although the rc.S/rc.M scripts can honour them, and there is a sysvinit package too distributed with slack that creates these directories, but if you do the above, you need not do any of it
