    How To: booting in X not in console mode


    I have decided to add this here because i had trouble with it.

    Well first. After loggin into console mode type in telinit 4 and it should bring you to a interface mode. then login, After you have done this open a terminal and type "mcedit /etc/inittab" with out quotations
    then you look for a line saying "id:3:initdefault:" change the 3 to a 4 and it should always boot into X

    Now it should look something like this
    Code:
    # These are the default runlevels in Slackware:
    #   0 = halt
    #   1 = single user mode
    #   2 = unused (but configured the same as runlevel 3)
    #   3 = multiuser mode (default Slackware runlevel)
    #   4 = X11 with KDM/GDM/XDM (session managers)
    #   5 = unused (but configured the same as runlevel 3)
    #   6 = reboot
    
    # Default runlevel. (Do not set to 0 or 6)
    id:4:initdefault:
    Please take notice to
    (Do not set to 0 or 6)
    if you do set to 0 or 6 slackware wont run..

    Thats all.. I hope it helps

    Sorry but this is basic knowledge, and it is in the slackbook . I don't think slackers need a howto for this .
