Hi Mike,- snip -/usr/local/etc/rc.d is a directory. Whether you recommend to create a file with only a single line :- 'Kdm &' (without quote) on it and save it to /usr/local/etc/rc.d/
Shall I 'chmod 775' the file created? Files in /usr/local/etc/rc.d/ directory have an extension '.h'. Shall I name the file as xxx.h?
The "&" makes it run the command as a background job, so that the prompt re-appears immedidately, and you can go on working in that shell. In this case, it just means that if you go back to that virtual terminal (with CTRL-Alt-F1 or whatever) you can run more commands outside KDE.
I think the rule for scripts in /usr/local/etc/rc.d is that they
will all be run on startup, provided they are executable. The
convention is to name them "xxx.sh", but I don't know if that is
actually required. So a chmod 500 should be the minimum required
permissions (-r-x------), and 755 will work OK.
Tks for your advice.
Have tried following version without success
/usr/local/etc/rc.d/kguilogin.sh #! /bin/sh 1) kdm & 2) exec "kdm &" 3) kdm 4) xinit kdm 5) xinit /usr/local/bin/kdm -- 6) xinit /usr/local/bin/kdm
