    Rosa Boots to Prompt


    I just installed Rosa, and I'm really impressed so far. But ever since I changed my video driver to the proprietary Nvidia driver I boot to a prompt rather than the KDE gui. If I login and run startx then everything's fine. How do I go about getting things to boot into KDE again?

    I've never heard of Rosa Linux so can't give details, but all Unix have different init level and one is for GUI startup. So need to check two thing in Rosa. Which init level is for GUI and second which /etc file you set it in.

    Welcome to the board.

    I can be found either 40 miles west of Chicago, in Chicago, or in a galaxy far, far away.

    Have you blacklisted the Nouveau driver?
    Sometimes, real fast is almost as good as real time.
