Unhappy starting graphical login from command line


hi guys

when i boot straight into the shell prompt (level 3 in the inittab file) and then give the "startx" command, i am booted straight to Gnome.

what command should i give so that i get the graphical login window (where there are options to choose the session, reboot, shutdown, etc)??

thanx in anticipation

Mayank

'gdm' without quotes is all you need to type to get to gnomes login manager. If you want to use the boring ugly X one type 'xdm' or 'kdm' for KDE's. But i think gnomes is by far the best looking.
