It's just time consuming typing in my logon name and password on root then I have to type in root and init 5 just to get to the log on area. Or is it always like these? Tnx..bear with me cause I'm a newbie..
To log on to UI instead of terminal first, edit your /etc/inittab file and look for :
# The default runlevel is defined here
Change id:3:initdefault to 5:
I'm not sure why your SLED is behaving differently. It's supposed to detect and use your DSL immediately. Plus your DVD/CD installation source should have been there immediately in YAST after installation.
As for restoring your installation source DVD/CD do:
1. look for your CD/DVD device assignment using Terminal:
;look for cdrecorder, cdrom, dvd, or dvdram and take note its device assignment, usually /dev/hdb
2. Exit terminal
3. Insert your SLED10 DVD into the drive and open up YAST
4. Go to to Installation Source and click on Add, DVD. Or you can manually add the installation source by clicking Add, Specify URL, then type cd:///?devices=/dev/hdb (you can replace /dev/hdb with the actual device that you have in your system)
5. That's all there is to it.
Hope this helps.
