I had only the first CD and the first DVD for the current version of Debian with which to install Debian on one of my computers. I managed the installation, however, and got a command prompt after booting. I then used TASKSEL to download Gnome. This succeeded; but, on rebooting, I still got a command prompt.
My documentation tells me to change the value of INITDEFAULT from 3 to 5 within the file INITTAB, which sits in /ETC. Debian will then boot to Gnome, and not the command prompt. The current version of Debian, however, does not have a file INITTAB under /ETC. How do I get Debian to boot to Gnome, currently, and not to a command prompt? Thank you for your help. -- William Lee Valentine --- This email has been checked for viruses by Avast antivirus software. https://www.avast.com/antivirus
