34 You can start <application>KDE4</application> from runlevel 3, using

36 such as <xref linkend="sddm"/>.

40 To start <application>KDE4</application> using <xref linkend="xinit"/>,

51 The X session starts on the first unused virtual terminal, normally vt7.
52 You can switch to another vt<emphasis>n</emphasis> simultaneously
53 pressing the keys Ctrl-Alt-F<emphasis>n</emphasis>
54 (<emphasis>n</emphasis>=1, 2, ...). To switch back to the X session,
55 normally started at vt7, use Ctrl-Alt-F7. The vt where the command
56 <command>startx</command> was executed will display many messages,
57 including X starting messages, applications automatically started with
58 the session, and eventually, some warning and error messages. You may
59 prefer to redirect those messages to a log file, which not only will keep
60 the initial vt uncluttered, but can also be used for debug purposes. This
61 can be done starting X with:

66 <note>
67 <para>
68 You may wish to drop consolekit and/or dbus-launch, e.g., just using
69 startkde in ~/.xinitrc. However some capabilities such as mounting or
70 umounting file systems from a file manager will not be possible, or the
71 reboot option will be absent or inoperative, among other problems.
72 </para>
73 </note>
74
75 <para>
76 When shutting down or rebooting, the shutdown messages appear on the vt
77 where X was running. If you wish to see those messages, simultaneously
78 press keys Alt-F7 (assuming that X was running on vt7).

86 <para>KDE4 comes with a graphical login interface called KDM (the KDE4 Display
87 Manager), which provides a customizable graphical login at boot. To use KDM,
88 you need to edit your <filename>/etc/inittab</filename> file (as the
89 <systemitem class="username">root</systemitem> user).
90 First, setup run-level 5 to start KDM (adjust
91 the path to kdm according to your system):</para>

94<literal>kd:5:respawn:/opt/kde/bin/kdm</literal>

96
97 <para>Additionally, you need to change the default run-level from 3 to 5:</para>
98
99<screen><userinput>sed -i 's#id:3:initdefault:#id:5:initdefault:#' /etc/inittab</userinput></screen>
