Post by Jmes Pa » Sun, 23 Mar 1997 04:00:00



I installed free SCO yesterday and happy with it.                       I have currently
start the SCO unix as non-GUI start-up screen but I want to go back to
the GUI start-up without installing the whole thing again.              

Thanks in advance.

'man scologin' will give you ideas.
But I suggest not using it, it's just more use of RAM.
Just stype 'startx' when you want to run the desktop.

Try: scologin enable
at the # prompt.

JP,

How much RAM is one saving by disabling scologin?

I checked this a long time ago, but I don't recall.

You need to create the link '/etc/rc2.d/P86scologin' to the file
'/var/opt/K/SCO/BaseX/5.1.1b/etc/rc2.d/P86scologin'.

This will then start the ScoLogin screen on boot on '/dev/tty02'

I have such a file linkage, yet scologin doesn't start here.

No, the existence of that file doesn't do it.

'man scologin'.

Sounds like you disabled the GUI from coming up.  You need to re-enable
it.

Try (as root) :

  # scologin enable

:JP,
:

On the order of 8 MB before you start any X applications.
Something like US$80 worth of memory?
