KDM Session Manager Startup


Hello All!

I am currently configuring my system to load up rc.4, the X window session manager. However, I would also like to have at least one CLI available. Now whenever I press ctrl-alt-f1 etc., nothing happends.

Thanks
Mords

You have one terminal available by default with runlevel 4, using Control+Alt+F6. To add more in, edit the following lines in /etc/inittab

Code:
c1:1235:respawn:/sbin/agetty 38400 tty1 linux
c2:1235:respawn:/sbin/agetty 38400 tty2 linux
c3:1235:respawn:/sbin/agetty 38400 tty3 linux
c4:1235:respawn:/sbin/agetty 38400 tty4 linux
c5:1235:respawn:/sbin/agetty 38400 tty5 linux
and replace '1235' with '12345' to add those consoles to runlevel 4.

Thanks!

I was wondering what the 12345 meant in those lines in the inittab.

Good Weekend Cathetic!
