Hello,

I used the cheat code "nogui" and booted to console, since that antix always boots to console even without the cheat code and I have to startx after logging in.

How do I enable slim again.

Thank you in advance for your help.

Try as root in a terminal

/etc/init.d/slim stop
/etc/init.d/slim start

Reboot, and cross your fingers.

Unfortunately it didn't work.

/etc/init.d/slim stop

sends back :

Stopping X display manager: slim not running (/var/run/slim.lock not found).

And : /etc/init.d/slim start

sends back

Starting X display manager: slim.

But when I reboot I still don't have slim enabled...

Check that nogui isn't in the grub/menu.lst.
See if /var/log/slim.log is large, if it is, delete it.
If above doesn't work, re-install slim.
