Must type startx after login to get itno gui?
I heard its suppose to just start up automaticly but it doesn't I have to type startx everytime I want to get in to the gui.
Any idea what the problem is?
Or is this normal?

Depending on your distro & login gui, normally, you make sure this is the case



I suppose yours is id3.

Check that you have an RPM for one of the following installed:

autostart your GUI
Hi there, you must have a control panel somewhere in RH which will have the option to automatically start the GUI on startup.

Or, you can just add the following line:


to a file that runs during init (such as the hidden .bash_profile in your home directory). Doing so will load your default GUI at login.

Or you missed the option that asked you during install if you wanted to start x at startup.

warning--maybe misguided though.

don't put startx in your root .bash_profile--if you have a problem with X you might go into an endless error loop.

if you are a newbie don't put anything in the root hidden files.
