Originally posted by Swilver What DOES work however is to do "startx" as a normal user, or, go to runlevel 5. X works absolutely fine then; at runlevel 5 I can even log in as root. Why I cannot just startx as root from runlevel 3 anymore (it works during the initial install) is beyond me...

New versions of X do not use the gray weaving pattern you may be familiar with. Edit .xinitrc in your home directory and have it point to a startup script in your /etc/X11/Sessions/ directory. For example:

Now typing 'startx' will launch you into a session manager without being in init 5 first.
