Fedora 6 CHAR login to GUI login


Hi,

As my desktop was freezing while Fedora Core 6 GUI install, I happened to succeed through Text install and was successful in making dual boot with XP.

I am wondering if I can change the way to login from Char to GUI.

Char means?


Do u point mutiusermode or init 3
To get to X or GUI as default do,

open /etc/inittab
find the line

id:3:initdefault:

3 is the mutliusermode,change it to 5, so that it look like

id:5:initdefault:


regards,
Nirmal Tom.

Thanks Nirmal,

However, I land up in another issue, it gets to the login screen, upon entering username & password it tries to open the GUI, but blinks twice and returns back to the login screen.

Any help is highly appreciated.


Regards
Kallimath
