My current mission is simple - to make arch boot into gnome.
First I want to make sure I got this right: gnome is based on the x-server, so I've installed
xorg. Then I've installed
gnome-extra. Now this is supposed to be enough, but I read that it is also recommended to install a display manager, so I've installed
1) What is the exact purpose of a display manager?
2) There are many ways that I've read to make arch boot into gnome: inittab, deamons, editing grub to boot into run level 5 and I think I bumped into another one I can't remember. What are the differences? Which one is the best/most simple?
