Could anyone answer these questions please:-
1) I have a dual boot Red Hat Linux6.0/Win98 machine on a 8.5Gb HD. I have made my wife one of the users of the Linux account. Can you tell me how I can get the root console to log onto the X Windows system when my wife types in her username and password without having to type startx?
2) If I have log into X Windows from a straight console session I am not able to swap back to the console session. Every time I do so I get a screenful of flashing boxes. Can you tell me how to resolve this.
3) Finally, if I alter /etc/inittab, to log onto X Windows automatically on start up, my computer seems to create backup inittabs without my asking it to do so. Why is this? Also when I try to change inittab from leve 5 (X Windows) to level 3 (multi-user no X Windows) RH6.0 just disregards my changes and logs into X Console.
Thanks for your help on this one
