    Graphical Desktop


    The graphical desktop won't start. . Is there something special i'm supposed to do at install? when i was installing and i tested the graphics configuration @1024x768 70 hz it failed. the graphic driver was 6800 generic(i think it said generic).

    What do you mean by this? do you boot into a command line? if so try the
    Code:
    startx
    command.

    Or is it that this didn't work?

    You're probably going to have to run XFdrake and find a configuration that will work.
    There are two major products that come out of Berkeley: LSD and UNIX. We don't believe this to be a coincidence.

    If I run startx I receive an error message. Something (EE)

    What happens if you run
    Code:
    su
    [rootpass]
    XFdrake
    try and configure the card so that it uses a smaller resolution.
