First I could not login using the gui login screen i was getting text login and to go to the
desktop I had to issue this command "startx"
everything looks good all my mp3 players work fine using mplayer and life with linux was rolling.... but I couldn't get this out of my mind; why I could not get the login gui screen to work??
so I login as a root and edit the etc/inittab
I had this line id:3:initdefault: changed it to this id:5:initdefault: rebooted my machine and woooola I got the gui login screen working..... I thought that I was rolling once again and wanted to play some mp3 to go with my celebration right!!!!!!!!
so I fired up mplayer and OMG mplayer got me an error then check sound card nooo sound, how
can this be, sound was working flawless before I made the change....
so here is the error message guys
"AO-ESD esd_open_sound failed: broken pipe"
if I change my setting on the etc/inittab to the way I had it before then everything works
