    Problem with start kde


    I got Mandrake 10.0, sucessfully installed it along with GRUB. I rebooted the machine after installation. Got pass the user login/password promp and then got to the promp {localhost@localdomain}$ or something like that. I typed in startkde after $, but then whole bunch of promp saying that "Cannot open display"and "Cannot connect to X-Serve" so I can't get in the K desktop environment. I am totally new to this OS, please offer some guidance.

    I got a Geforce 4 Ti 4200 using Mandrake generic driver.

    have you tried running xf86config? if not run it and answer the questions about your hardware. make sure you know the refresh rates of your monitor.

    I'm thinking the command you want to run is

    Code:
    startx
    What does that do?

    How do you run X86Config after I done with installation, I using GURB, what command I need to input to bring up the config menu.
    I also tried to run 'startx' after the login/password promp, but the screen just turned dark after that command.
    I have a relatively new LCD panel, I chose FLAT PANEL 1280 x 1024 during installation.

    Thanks
