booting bt3 questions
this will probably seem like a stupid question.
but how do i edit my syslinux.cfg so that it boots straight into the KDE graphics mode instead of showing the menu, and then straight into the video mode waiting for me to press space.
Try the search function.
But why do you want to edit syslinux.cfg?
Also what's your linux experience so far?
...maybe im barking up the wrong tree lol.
but yeh i just wanna boot into BT3 without all the menus and prompts.
my linux experience is limited to ubuntu basics - and using google to search for tutorials.
this thread kinda told me whats going on.
what im trying to do is to get my liveusb(well sdhc here) install to boot straight into BT3kde mode. which is why i think syslinux.cfg needed to be edited, since everything that is there is on the boot menu.
you have the right idea.
if you notice when you open syslinux.cfg the "timeout 40". And also the default mode
i edited my syslinux.cfg and changed the timeout to 1 and just put xconf1 as the default.
with the timeout thing on the videomode. i think its something to do with vmlinuz. and since i dont know how to edit that to...ill just have to not worry about it lol.
thanx dave, was gonna start reading the slackware book that balding parrot posted, but i'll read this instead.
Good friend of the forums
xconfg does not start X, it just clears / resets / reconfigures your xorg.conf and if you're having a changes partition on the usb... bad
try ;startx at the end
Since BT4 is not based on Slax anymore the book is still an awesome read but not suited anymore since there are a lot of small differences.
