    Help me get the GUI back


    i have a nvidia 7300 graphic card (mandriva recognized it as GeForce 8 series) but compiz fusion wouldnt run so i downloaded the latest nvidia drivers following this instructions:

    as root typed "telinit 3" then "sh NVIDIA-Linux-x86-169.12-pkg1.run"
    but then i got an gcc error "check cc is in your path"

    anyways, now when i boot i only get the command line, i tried doing "init 5", "telinit 5" and "ctrl alt F7"

    please help me out, thanks

    Hi - try startx or startkde. Anything?

    I think you were missing gcc (you also need to install the kernel-source package). To fix the problems with your graphics, login to the CLI as root and run the command XFdrake.
