Bug Description

Binary package hint: gdm

The error occurs with these steps:
- (freshly install lucid beta)
- boot the system normally
- switch to runlevel 1 with 'telinit 1', gdm is stopped properly.
- log in as root
- switch to runlevel 2 with 'telinit 2'

Now gdm is not started. Because /etc/init/gdm.conf does not configure the service to start on switching to runlevel 2

This bug is not the same as https://bugs.launchpad.net/bugs/436936 where you start with _booting_ into single user mode.

Thanks for the report, it has been some time without any response or feedback in this bug report and we are wondering if this is still an issue for you with the latest release of Ubuntu the Natty Narwhal, May you please test with that version and comment back if you're still having or not the issue? Please have a look at http://www.ubuntu.com/download to know how to install that version.Thanks in advance.
