I have the “Use graphical console” option checked under Boot Loader Settings > Kernel Parameters. However when I boot my SLES15SP2 virtual machine it will not start the graphical console. I can log into the console and start it with “init 3” then “init 5”. Any help appreciated.
@Jamie Hi and welcome to the Forum
That option is for GRUB graphical, not the desktop, by default SLES will boot to the tty/console (runlevel 3), for graphical (runlevel 5) target, you need to set this option as follows;
Runlevel 5 systemctl set-default graphical.target Runlevel 3 systemctl set-default multi-user.target
This did not help unfortunately. Is there a log that would indicate what is happening?
@Jamie Hi, so what does the output show from
Logs for Xorg should be down in
/var/log to see what is what.
I think I see my error now. I was following your reply “system set-default graphical.target” then “systemctl set-default multi-user.target”. So it works if I use the graphical.target parameter only. Thanks for the help.
