Re: Starting X-Windows on boot



I believe you need to change the default run-level to 5.  You should be able
to edit the inittab file with something like this:

# Run level 5  turns the system into an X workstation
xw:5:once:/usr/bin/x11/xdm -nodaemon

You can substitute another window manager of course.  Came across this
tidbit in the O'Reilly Sysadmin book.
