on my Desktop i can only unlock grub with the root user, then after startx with regular user at tty, does this include some security concern, or is root only used to unlock grub?

Do you refer to the init 3 state ? (please check google / wikipedia / gentoo wiki for details)

I assume you want to have a graphical login manager like you see in windows or the other binary distros right? => You may just need to set up a graphical login manager like e.g. slim, lxdm, kdm, gdm?




SLiM is an acronym for Simple Login Manager.
