    Graphics, No GUI?


    So basically I just installed Madriva but when I log in there is nothing there, all I see is a clock in the top right and some options when you hold the left click about the screen?




    What's this about, did I do something wrong?

    Sorry just had to edit and update the situation, the password issue was resolved and was pretty foolish of me.

    2005 is very old.

    At a console login, when you type a password, nothing appears on screen. Just type the password and hit enter.

    Yeah I figured that out ages ago I think I was editing thread when you posted so it didn't change the title.


    Yeah may be old but I only had 1 cd disc so only version I could get to try out.

    Actually, there are several single-CD versions of the latest Mandriva, 2008.1.

    Download | Mandriva

    It's called "Mandriva One" and you can download a version with KDE, one with Gnome, or one with all GPL components (meaning no wireless drivers).
