Login Manager - LXDM


As Login Manager, LXDM is installed on Plop Linux. This provides an alternative login method for console login.


Enable the Login Manager


Change the default runlevel to runlevel 5 to use the Login Manager. Edit /etc/inittab and change the line 3 from id:3:initdefault:
To id:5:initdefault:

Also disable the autologin on tty1.

Sample inittab:
# Begin /etc/inittab

id:5:initdefault:

si::sysinit:/etc/rc.d/init.d/rc sysinit

l0:0:wait:/etc/rc.d/init.d/rc 0
