During the text mode install you should be asked if you want a Graphical or Text
login screen.

If you've already installed the box, just edit /etc/inittab and change this line:


to be:


Then reboot and you should come up in a graphical login (assuming you installed
GNOME and/or KDE).

Comment 2 Bill Westermann 2003-04-08 17:29:39 UTC
since the error msgs are had graphics info, I did NOT install GNOME or KDE 
thinking the graphics was the problem.   When the text install worked fine, I 
assumed I was right.   It is too late to add either?   And how would I do that?

Also, which is YOUR personal favorite?  I'll install that one, then I'll do 
that id:5:initdefault: thing.  Then I go graphics.


Comment 3 Michael Fulbright 2003-05-13 18:59:38 UTC
You will need to reinstall the system and be sure to pick 'Personal Desktop'
from the options. This will include the default environment we ship.  Its ok if
you are running the text based installer.
