Try to set your Xserver up. This could be a configuration issue... As root, try xfcfg If it doesn't work, then xfcfg -textmode If it doesn't still work, try xf86cfg ...

    Try to set your Xserver up. This could be a configuration issue...

    As root, try xfcfg

    If it doesn't work, then xfcfg -textmode

    If it doesn't still work, try xf86cfg

    I hope this helps!

    After i type the first bit i get "total 96" then all this jargon.

    After the second bit I get three lines all starting with XFree86 - (something)

    i then type in startx but to no avail - the same error

    EDIT: I was referring to eugrus

    I think it is not.

    Looks like there are no some X11 files, or there are some broken links.

    Ok this might help the situation better.

    I actually downloaded cd 1 of Mandrake 10.1 last night.

    If someone could simply explain something about burning ISOs it would be much appreciated (yes i have read everywhere).

    I have one winRAR file. I unzip it. I now have a folder with like a few winRAR files in there and some random ISO files in subfolders. How do i burn it like this, making sure the ISO files are burnt how they are supposed to be. If i can get that working, then i can just install 10.1 onto my computer

    thanks for the assistance that you have given me even though i didnt get far

    Try "xf86config"

    When I run that configuration thing it takes me through all this stuff which I have no clue how to respond. I try to be conservative in my answers etc. Anyway i manage to get to the end. Then when it is writing the file it says cannot get to the directory or something like that... I turned the computer off in a fit of rage.

    On this site you can find MDK 10.1 ISO's. Or the new LE ISO's if you want those. Page down a little ways for 10.1

    Go here for burning instructions.

    Hope this helps.
    P.S. for that xf86config you need to know your system.
    But it should have been able to write it, even if you put wong answers in there. It still should have wrote something.
