    KDM will not start

    I am at my wit's end. I can not figure out this infernal upstart system.

    Just installed BackTrack and encrypted the disk. It always boots to CLI by default. So I installed KDM but apparently it is not familiar with the new upstart system either because it will not start on boot. It puts symlinks in init.d and it even puts a .config in init. And I can start it with service start kdm.

    But it will not start on boot. Why did they foist this on us right as I am trying to learn BackTrack?!

    What about using rc.local ?

    I guess I'm going to have to. This command is supposed to enable an upstart service at boot:
    chkconfig kdm on
    ... but unfortunately it needs /sbin/insserv which is no longer there! Brilliant!

    Yup, now there's no hope of finding an answer; moved to the sticks.
