An easiest way would be
save, exit, reboot.
(Info from here)
lets do our bt4 pre-final to run the "startx" command
create a new text file on your desktop and name it "xstrup.sh"
open it wit a text editor and write:
and save it.Code:#!/bin/sh stratx
then open a terminal.Run the following commands:
DONE!!!Code:cd chmod +x xstrup.sh sudo cp xstrup.sh /etc/init.d/
Or maybe change the default runlevel to 4
This will start kdm what you can configure from kde to log on automatically as a specified user
In Debian based distros there is no default run level for graphical mode unlike some others.
For more information about runlevels in Debian: An introduction to run-levels
The preferred method of getting xserver to boot on startup is via the installation of a graphical display manager.
The postinst script of the package will automatically add it to the default runlevel.Code:# aptitude install kdm
Yep, Slackware based distros do have a graphical run level.
Install kdm, and then, in sysv-rc-conf select kdm to run in run level 2
Why not just add it the default run level and leave it at that? Must we hack around configuration files when we don't need to?in sysv-rc-conf select kdm to run in run level 2
double post, disregard
Having installed kdm myself, and set the runlevel to 5 upon boot, has anybody noticed that certain environment variables are being changed and/or reset? I.e. the $PATH no longer reflects whatever is written in /etc/environment. Try logging in on another tty (ctrl+alt+F2) and you'll get proper variables, unlike in the X.
I have the card in me head, but you have the memory problems?
Or place a link to x11 on KDE startup directory . . . (noob friendly)
