X only starts with Ethernet cable plugged in
I have a RHEL 5.2 machine.
My /etc/inittab has this line
However, when the network cable is unplugged, I just get a
text login prompt and no X11.
If I type
I get errors saying the server is already active for display 0
As soon as I plug the ethernet cable into the machine, X11 starts up
and I'm presented with the graphical login window.
Does anyone have any ideas why this is the case?
This is a laptop system and I will not have network connectivity all the time
but still need to log into it with a local account and expect X11 to work.
