    Can only get terminal window with VNC

    I've tried RealVNC and TightVNC on my Slack 10.2 box. Using WinXP on the client side. I can get both of them to work - both only producing a termainal window.

    How do a I get a graphical desktop?

    Just getting the obvious out of the way:

    By default Slackware boots into run level 3, which is a multi-user text mode level. To start in X, you'll either need to configure inittab to run level 4 or do "startx".
