Booting as a regular desktop
« on: August 07, 2009, 11:17:43 am »
How do I configure linux 0810 alpha 2 during installation that it doesn't boot upon startup but it only starts when I hit the link on my desktop?

And as for a second question: If I install it in my current 0810 Kubuntu system and I upgrade this system to 0904 would it still work? Or are there features that would break on such an upgrade?

Hi,

Version 7.04/7.10 had a choice during installation for using primarily as a desktop.  

I'm not sure if this feature will be included as part of the final (or beta) build.

Hopefully someone can answer this or provide a workaround.

LMCE is based on 8.10 and will NOT work if you upgrade to 9.04.

Try changing the default runlevel, as described here: http://wiki.linuxmce.org/index.php/Clean_Core#Changing_the_default_runlevel
