Talking Starting X automaticaly at boot time


Hi there;
Im setting up a slackware workstation for my friend,
He has no linux experience & plans not to really get into the dirty parts.
He's a java developer.
anyway he will only be using KDE3.2 and netbeans so i want to get X starting when the machine boots.
the idea is that he can use the system without having to learn the system.

if this goes well i could get some more test users and then possibly get slackware installed in some of the computer labs in my college.
Anyway, slackware 9.1 the only changes are with kde 3.2 compiled & installed
(which by the way kicks ass,anyone using KDE3.1 please switch, its great stuff)

Thanks for any help

Hi...

In /etc/inittab change the runlevel.

# These are the default runlevels in Slackware:
# 0 = halt
# 1 = single user mode
# 2 = unused (but configured the same as runlevel 3)
# 3 = multiuser mode (default Slackware runlevel)
# 4 = X11 with KDM/GDM/XDM (session managers)
# 5 = unused (but configured the same as runlevel 3)
# 6 = reboot

# Default runlevel. (Do not set to 0 or 6)
id:3:initdefault:

Change this line to id:4:initdefault:
