I would like to enable rhgb under other runlevels besides 5. I am wondering if anyone can forsee a problem if I recompile rhgb to also run under init 4 as a test first? In this runlevel(4) X is run from bash from an automatic login using mingetty so X should be properly detected from rhgb.
EDIT: Works great! However instead of quitting rhgb from prefdm it should be done through rc.local for all runlevels other than 5 as prefdm handles the quitting of rhgb normally. Useful only for those who don't want runlevel 5 but still want a graphical loader and auto login to X. Also handy for those who need automated rotation but your graphics card doesn't support randr(two xorg.conf's and a script handle the automation).
EDIT#2: I would write a multipart howto but I fear no one needs any of these features but me. Please delete this thread.
