Not sure if this who to report this to or how to view it, but wanted to share this experience. I installed F10 x86_64 on a machine for work. I wanted a minimal X11 environment, so I opted to install just WindowMaker and no desktop environment like Gnome. No errors occurred, install completed successfully. On firstboot I was greeted with the text-mode setup utility to configure firewall, networking, etc. I thought this odd, but went with it. After completing setup, I was in run level 3. Checking I realized no display manager were installed, nor was X. So I installed both. Here are the issues. Doing a groupinstall for X did not prompt me for or change my default runlevel to 5. So I had to manually edit /etc/inittab to set it to 5. That's when the other issue popped up: no services were configured for runlevel 5. Networking, httpd, etc. all shut down when things booted. X displayed during boot but, when the system went to runlevel 5, everything else shut down. Shouldn't installing X make runlevel 5 the default? And, even if we don't install X, why should't services toggle their runlevel 5 state? -- Darryl L.
