Fedora Graphical boot


Hi everyone

Got a question. I upgraded to Fedora Core 1 and would like to get the Graphical boot working. I did manage to instal the rhgb***.rpm file. Then I see the following in the release notes.

and add the rhgb boot-time parameter to your bootloader configuration.

Would really appreciate some help in doing this. Not sure exactly what to add to what file. Since I am a relative newbie, please make it clear for me. Thanks.

Edit your /boot/grub/grub.conf file, and add "rhgb" to the end of the line starting with "kernel /vmlinuz...". Then, you'll need to look in your /etc/inittab and make sure the default runlevel is set to 5. There will be a section telling what runlevel is what, and the line "id:5:initdefault:". It make sure it has a five, and not another number. Should be good to go, after that.

Hi ranger_nemo

Thanks for the response. I did put rhgb at the end of the vmlinuz line so that it looks like this,

[root@localhost grub]# more grub.conf
# grub.conf generated by anaconda
#
# Note that you do not have to rerun grub after making changes to this file
# NOTICE: You do not have a /boot partition. This means that
# all kernel and initrd paths are relative to /, eg.
# root (hd1,0)
# kernel /boot/vmlinuz-version ro root=/dev/hdd1
# initrd /boot/initrd-version.img
#boot=/dev/hda
default=0
timeout=10
splashimage=(hd1,0)/boot/grub/splash.xpm.gz
title Fedora Core (2.4.22-1.2115.nptl)
root (hd1,0)
kernel /boot/vmlinuz-2.4.22-1.2115.nptl ro root=LABEL=/ hdc=ide-scsi rhgb
initrd /boot/initrd-2.4.22-1.2115.nptl.img
title Windows ME
rootnoverify (hd0,0)
chainloader +1

Well, it did it part of the way. Once I got to the interactive part, it went into the graphical boot. Is it susposed to work that way? Thanks again.

Jim

S'posed to or not, I don't know, but that's what mine does.

The graphical boot starts after the kernel loads, so you still see the text of the kernel loading. Then the graphical boot takes over when fedora starts loading it's services.
