View Full Version : Verbos Mode, and having to do startx

How do I make it so that happens? Meaning now boot screen, I want to see everything happen, and how do I make it so I have to startx when it finishes booting?

if you have gdm (or kdm or xdm) installed then X will start at boot time.

in some odd cases you may need to press ctrl+alt+F7 to get to it.

To make he boot-up verbose (means text mode), remove the "quiet" and "splash" commands form the kernel command line.

(Edit /boot/grub/menu.lst).

If you don't want to start X at startup, you can either remove the gdm (or kdm) from /etc/init.d/, or modify them so that they don't execute anything.

Hope that helps.
