Auto Load GUI

Postby Blueracer » Wed Apr 01, 2009 5:57 am

In Fedora 9 when the computer reboots it stops at the command line and says to enter "I" to load the GUI. Is there a way to load it automatically?

modify /etc/inittab

there must be a line with the following entry:
id:3:initdefault: (the number may vary but is usually 3 - indicating the runlevel, 3 is multi-user with networking

change the number to 5 and it will boot in graphical mode.
echo '16i[q]sa[ln0=aln100%Pln100/snlbx]sbA0D2173656C7572206968616D41snlbxq' | dc

actually, blueracer, how did you get into that predicament??

there seems to be something odd or possibly wrong with that installation.
graphics should definitely come up by default!

the only time fedora asks for "press I" is for interactive startup. there is a little delay at that point.

what happens if you do nothing - don't press i?

maybe that system is slow and you think it's asking you to press i.
