    Default How to start in INIT5 after instalation with INIT3

    Hi all

    In instalation process, I've choose init with level 3, but, when I try to run startx with a normal user I've a error message, running startx with root user it's ok.

    So, I would like to use startx or change xdm to kdm with INIT5.

    How can I do any of 2 options?

    Tks.

    This will return current target
    Code:
    systemctl get-default
    Note: 'runlevel3.target' is a symbolic link to 'multi-user.target' and 'runlevel5.target' is a symbolic link to 'graphical.target'

    Set graphical.target as default with
    Code:
    systemctl set-default graphical.target
    You may need to edit /etc/sysconfig/displaymanager to make sure kdm starts automatically

    Code:
    DISPLAYMANAGER="kdm"

    You can also use YaST->System->Services Manager (even in text mode) to set the default target/runlevel.
