No sweat - just do the same for someone else someday

Anyways - lets get to the action...

Open the file initab

initab is as explained in the directory /etc

You might need to leave your /home directory (i.e.) go up a level or two till you find yourself at root level - They you should be able to see the directory /etc

I entered /etc/ in my home directory and got a million different icon windows that opened up below it, is that right?

Select Open File in Kwrite

I presume a box with filenames and directories open - Am I correct?

Kwrite states this because I double clicked on the inittab;

This file describes how the INT process should set up the system in a certain run-level.

If the file is open then find the following line in your initab

id:5:initdefault:

Now Change id:5 to id:3

id:5:initdefault: <------- Change this line

After the change it should now look like this

id:3:initdefault:

Let me know if you have succeeded in opening the file and if you have located the line...

It should be placed just below a chunk of text looking like this:

#
# inittab This file describes how the INIT process should set up
# the system in a certain run-level.
#
# Author: Miquel van Smoorenburg, <miquels@drinkel.nl.mugnet.org>
# Modified for RHS Linux by Marc Ewing and Donnie Barnes
#

# Default runlevel. The runlevels used by RHS are:
# 0 - halt (Do NOT set initdefault to this)
# 1 - Single user mode
# 2 - Multiuser, without NFS (The same as 3, if you do not have networking)
# 3 - Full multiuser mode
# 4 - unused
# 5 - X11
# 6 - reboot (Do NOT set initdefault to this)

Go to line 17 of your initab... if I counted correctly and you should find

id:5:initdefault:

Now Change the part that says id:5 to id:3

id:5:initdefault: <------- Change this line

After the change it should now look like this

id:3:initdefault:
