Twice I have installed Linux, and chosen "Use Graphical Login" and both
times that hasn't worked.  Running Xconfigurator fixes the problem.

Comment 1 Jay Turner 1999-12-06 12:40:59 UTC
There is a known bug that if you select to have X start on boot, and then choose
to customize the X configuration, then the first setting is lost and therefore
you do not get the graphical login.  This problem is fixed when using the latest
boot disks and updates image, but that is probably a lot more trouble than it is
worth considering that you already have the system installed and have come up
with a workaround to the problem.  Thanks for the report.
