How to start gdm by default
I need to start gdm by default on one of my boxes, which is currently
booting into text mode.
I do have gdm installed:
$ dpkg -l | grep gdm
ii gdm 2.20.11-4 GNOME Display Manager
It's still activated as the bootup service:
% update-rc.d gdm defaults
gdm already in /etc/runlevel.conf: No change.
$ grep gdm /etc/runlevel.conf
01 0,1,6 - /etc/init.d/gdm
30 - 2,3,4,5 /etc/init.d/gdm
which should mean business as usual to start it when system boot up. But
my gdm is not starting.
Actually, I'm been booting to text mode ever since I use Linux, and have
forgot what trick I played to switch the booting mode (from gui to text)
Here are my current (related) settings:
$ grep initdefault /etc/inittab
$ tail -3 /boot/grub/menu.lst
title os11 :: Debian kernel 2.6.35-grml64
kernel /boot/vmlinuz-2.6.35-grml64 root=/dev/sda8 ro vga=normal
Where should I tweak? Is above enough?
