Using Daryna KDE
Since this is using upstart how to you set like inittab to go to run level 3 at startup. I want change this a few times when I am testing. Also I know about the security but I will be installing and testing alot and I want to run as root login. This is using KDE 4 I think and cannot find the place to set to allow root login access. Do you use sudo passwd root and set password and then allow root login in KDE so I can then login as root. If you where. Thanks for any help. Greghar
I thought I answered you already - must have disappeared in Cyberspace
Yes you're right, only I think it's just sudo passwd but I've seen both methods mentioned. If you use passwd without sudo you set it for the current account
Don't fix it if it ain't broken, don't break it if you can't fix it
Run Level 3 is usually Text mode login. On most linux Dist. you use inittab to set this level if you want to boot to text login. Level 5 usually graphic mode. Mint\Ubuntu is using upstart now not inittab. Want to find out how to set run level there. Thanks Greghar
there are no run levels now only events. but legacy stuff is causing some confusion. rc2-5 are really one event: system run (rc2 is the default the others are just copies). but before that rcS is run which is a Startup event(s).
