Casandra will only boot in Recovery

Postby Stretch » Fri Sep 14, 2007 8:26 pm

If I try to start in "normal" boot mode, my PC always crashes when X just starts. However if I start in Recovery mode, then when then prompt appears I type "telinit 3", X will start as normal with the GDM login screen.

I am confused for 2 reasons:

1. Why will it only boot in Recovery mode
2. I thought "telinit 3" would start runlevel 3 (no GUI).

That is what I use when I go into Recovery and need to load X
