    Mandrake + Graphical Interface

    This is more of a linuz based question, rather than a linux programming question, but I hope someone can help. When I log onto linux, it doesnt go directly into the graphical interface. Is there any way to access it from the command line?

    Thanks

    Type startx.

    If the GUI isn't working, it's likely something is messed up though, and startx is likely to fail .

    on redhat (not sure bout Mandrake)
    it is in the inittab

    /etc/inittab

    it specifies how the system should boot up, now for mine i have it on
    3 for Multiuser mode
    but u want it on 5 to start X11 by default.

    IF you want X11 to start up by default for Linux

    as root,

    $./sbin/telinit 5

    This will set the run level to 5 in /etc/inittab
