Booting up to Konsole instead of KDE
i am having problems booting up to my KDE gui. I have Mandrake 9.2 installed. I can't remember exactly what I did but I downloaded some updates to try to get some video player installed (i think it was mplayer).
Ever since then (about 3 days ago) whenever I boot up the computer it goes straight to the Konsole instead of the gui. Once in the Konsole I can't find any way to get back to my gui.
Can I have my gui back - please?:)
or will i have to reinstall? :(
Booting up to Console instead of KDE
thanks for all your help!
1) i tried typing
and the message it gave me was
execve failed for /etc/X11/X (errorno 2) giving up
xinit: no such file or directory (errorno 2) : unable to connect to X server
xinit:no such process (error no 3):server error
2) i tried typing
but the prompt simply reappeared again
From 1) and 2) we can presumably know that it is a problem with X or its configuration?
3) Then i tried
grep EE /var/log/XFree86.0.log
and the message which came up was
(WW) warning, (EE) error, (NI) not immplemented, (??) unknown
(II) loading extension MIT-SCREEN-SAVER
4) Finally I tried
grep EE /etc/X11/XF86Config
but the prompt simply reappeared again.
that's it - i am not sure what to do next
