Redhat 8.0 GUI Login


I somehow lost my GUI login for Redhat 8.0 and can only use the text base one and I can't figure out how to get it back. Can anyone help?

Open /etc/inittab
There shoud be a line that says:

id:3:initdefault

Change the 3 to a 5

i did change the last line of inittab, but i dont remember what its supposed to be originally something like

x:5:something something something

does that have anything to do with it?
