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.
