starting gui


When I start Mandrake 10 it opens in terminal instead of starting the gui. How do I start in the desktop mode instead of terminal?

Edit /etc/inttab.

Change this line:

id:3:initdefault:

to this:

id:5:initdefault:

Just a matter of changing the number...

if you are trying to get to the desktop from the terminal so that you can edit it, type:

startkde

That should get you into kde, if not just type:

kde

Good Luck
