Subject: so ... how do i get a graphical boot?
i realize that the graphical boot has been discussed on numerous
occasions, but frankly, i've never seen one on my system (currently
running FC3). how do i get one? (at the moment, i see the standard
line-oriented boot i've seen for years).
i've verified that /etc/sysconfig/init contains
i've perused /etc/rc.sysinit and the conditions look like they'd be
satisfied. /usr/bin/rhgb is there. the file /proc/cmdline does not
contain the string "nogui". so what am i missing?
i figured it would be nice to see this graphical boot thingie at
In grub.conf look for the line;
kernel /vmlinuz-2.4.22-1.2115.nptl ro root=LABEL=/ hdd=ide-scsi
all you have to do is add rhgb to the end of the line and the graphical
boot should come up. You might have a different kernel installed but it
should look the same.
