    Weird restart option


    Can anyone help me? i just did a little mistake when i chose the way i restart Mandrake linux 10.0. There was an option where i could chose how to reboot. I didn't freaken know and i chose restart in linux from the KDE dropbox login screen. A big mistake for me coz now i can't login Mandrake with a GUI like windows, what i only see is in the console shell mode (like Dos screen). Does anyone know how to fix this ? and please help me to get to the Mandrake Linux nomal login KDE screen. Or the only way to fix this is to reinstall the Mandrake? I don't really know why Mandrake has this stupid option.

    i had looked into the file etc/inittab and found "id5:initdefault:". I tried the command: startx and xinit && xterm but i still can't get back to the GUI login screen

    startx returns me back to the console shell login black screen.

    Message from startx or xinit && xterm:
    XIO: fatal IO error 104 (Connection reset by peer) on XServer":0.0"
    after 0 requests (0 known processed) with 0 events remaining

    Does anyone know how to fix this problem?

    Have you tried "xorgconfig"?
    You will need you monitor, keyboard and mouse specs.

    Hope this helps.
