View Full Version : FC5T3 no graphical startup
7th March 2006, 09:38 PM
I install FC5T3 using 'linux text' and the install was perfect. Now, when FC5 starts up, there's no fancy graphic start up screen it's all text. Then, it displays 'login:' which I have to login as root and start the gdm from a command line. I don't mind the text startup. How do I ge the gdm to start up without having to login as root first on the command line?

Type "startx" from the command line

OK, this will get you Gnome installed and then have it start automatically in GUI mode:su -
yum update -y
your computer will now reboot, log back in and continue:
yum groupinstall "GNOME Desktop Environment"
Now, you're editing the file. Do this:
You will see a part like this:
# 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)
Change the bold line to:
esc (or escape)
