Runlevel Ubuntu

I have use vmware and have loaded latest ubuntu on it. When I started it up it runs on runlevel 2.


I cant surf. But if I change to runlevel 5 everything works. I try to locate inittab but I cant find it.

Any ideas?

The /etc/inittab file was part of the System V startup system. Ubuntu 9.04 and 9.10 use a new system called upstart. You can find more information in /usr/share/doc/upstart/README.Debian.gz, or on the ubuntu forums. The README.Debian.gz file explains how to change things that you would otherwise change by editing /etc/inittab.
If you look into /etc/init/rc-sysinit.conf you should find a line similar to this:

# Default runlevel, this may be overriden on the kernel command-line
# or by faking an old /etc/inittab entry

Either change this or use manually generated /etc/inittab.

Your last comment really help me. Thx. I just need to know also why it starts at 2? Is it because of the vmware or is it by default set to that?
