View Full Version : Problem booting to runlevel 5

09-27-2004, 04:19 PM
Hey guys and girls,

Forgive my ignorance, I'm new to linux. :oops:

I have the following problem. Just installed knoppix 3.6 but system does not boot into runlevel 5. If I log in as root and run kdm from prompt then all is well. Default runlevel in inittab is runlevel 5. Can you please guide me as to where I should look to achieve booting directly into KDE?

Thanks in advance

THis problem usually happen to people who install knoppix from outside kde or using text mode boot.
The only solution I know is to do full reinstall from within kde.
:D :D :D

you start kdm from commandline?
I use 'startx' to start x from the commandline, but that needn't mean, it's better than 'kdm'.

In your /etc/rc5.d/, which files do you find?

ls /etc/rc5.d/ > filelist

I got a S99kdm there.
