Question Does X11R6 come up automatically at login?

I have loaded RedHat 5.1 on a CompuAdd i486 w/ 405Mb HD, CompuAdd monitor, and ? video card. As part of the installation, I checked that I would like to have XFree86 X11R6 installed. After I reboot, is X11R6 suppose to come up automatically, or do I need to perform some configuration, or a start up routine? (See also message thread, " What's in my Computer/Utility to find out".) Thank you.

If it didn't, then no.

Startup, or configuration, probably both. If you were asked questions during installation about your video hardware, then just try: startx

If not cd over to: /usr/X11/bin and look for a file called: xf86config

Run that to configure.
