-===== Post Installation ===== 
  
-When you have rebooted into your new Slackware installation,​ the very first step you should take is to create a user. By default, the only user that exists after the install is the root user, and it's dangerous to use your computer as root, given that there are no restrictions as to what that user can do. 
  
-The quickest and easiest way to create a normal user for yourself is to log in as root with the root password that you created at the end of the intallation process, and then issue the `adduser` command. This will interactively assist you in creating a user; see the section called [[slackbook:​users|Managing Users and Groups]] for more information.+====== Chapter Navigation ======
  
-Another important step is to make sure that your installation is up-to-date as new updates are being released that can include security fixes. To do that we can use the [[slackware:slackpkg|slackpkg]] tool to update the list of packages and install new updates with it.+**Previous Chapter: ​[[slackbook:intro_to_slackware|Introduction]]**
  
-One last thing there will be mail in the root user's mailbox filled with useful ​information ​about package managementas well as system configuration and maintenanceYou should check it with your favorite mail clientIf you have not used any of the included mail clients, alpine is a good suggestion ​to get started quickly and easily.+**Next Chapter: [[slackbook:​booting|Booting]]**

-=== Configuring Graphical Logins === +<!-- Please do not modify anything belowexcept adding new tags.--> 
-Once your system is up to date and you have created your first user, you may want to configure your system to boot into X by default, with a graphical login instead of a console login. ​ You can first test that X auto-detects your video correctly by issuing the `startx` command. ​ If X11 starts and you end up at a desktop, you're probably good to go.  Open the /​etc/​inittab file, as root, in your editor of choice. ​ Change the following line: +<!-- You must also remove ​the tag-word "​template"​ belowOtherwise your page will not show up in the Table of Contents ​-->

-   +
-To be this: +
- +
-  # Default runlevel. (Do not set to 0 or 6) +
-  id:​4:​initdefault:​ +
- +
-This sets your default run-level to 4which is Slackware'​s "​graphics-only"​ mode (with one extra tty open just in case, on vty 6) Save, and on your next reboot the system will boot into a nice graphical login. +
- +
-You can manually enter run-level 4 by entering, as root, `init 4`. +
- +
-To select or switch between available [[slackware:​desktop_environment|desktop environments]] run ''​xwmconfig''​ as root. +
