    Creating a user account...

    Hi all,
    I just started using Linux OS not long ago..
    I have created a user account call "user" ...
    However, it will automatically restart the X-Server whenever I log in as user...
    What are the steps required to log in as the X Windows ...??
    Thanks in advance,
    xiao guang

    Moved to the tech forum, as this isn't "programming related".
    When all else fails, read the instructions.
    If you're posting code, use code tags: [code] /* insert code here */ [/code]

    to start X:
    #> startx

    to start x after booting, u have to use xdm.... (use telinit for it, u have to change the runlevel....)

    check, whether xdm works correctly:
    #> /sbin/telinit 5

    U should see now a graphical user login window....

    logout now....

    when xdm works, you have to change the runlevel....

    open and edit the file inittab:

    #>joe /etc/inittab

    you have to change:




    you save the file (joe)

    reboot your system, now you can use the graphical login.......
