    Unhappy X-windown can not start up.


    Yesterday,I installed a Mandrake Linux 10.X with Vmware and I have never choiced the option "start X-windows when the system starting".I uesed command "startx" after login the system with the user "root".However,4 small screens(each one is the command line mode) was occured and then I have to used Google to look for help.Following,I typed the command "startx init 3" and "startx init 5" and these were fully invain.So,I have to ask for help here.

    What you are seeing is twm, try using "startkde" or editing the file ~/.xinitrc with the command you want when you use startx
