Mandrake x-server problems
Please, Im a newbie to Mandrake 10 and just installed it:
1. How can I, or what command do I use to start x-server automatically from boot(after loggin in).....I didnt select "start x-server automatically after boot up" during my installation.....i forgot.....
2. I installed it on a Laptop......for example: when entering my username/password, i have the letter "i"...now when I press "i", as part of my username, I dont see the "i", instead I get a "5"....
(the keyboard of my laptop has some letters that have other "numerics" in blue color on the same keynote....for example: "p has -", "o has 6", "i has 5", "u has 4"...others like "jkl have 123" as additionals.....
I discovered that when i hold down the "fn" key and then press "i" for example, then I can get the "i" letter correctly.
Is it possible to disable this feature permanently so that I dont have to always hold down the "fn" key before I get letters "uiopjkl"?
hope the question is clear....
Hi - I don't know about the second half of your question, but if you type startx that should boot you into graphical mode.I am always doing that which I can not do, in order that I may learn how to do it. - Pablo Picasso

Probably there is something wrong with your X setup. Normally, Mandrake by default boots to a graphical login screen.** Registered Linux User # 393717 and proud of it ** Check out www.zenwalk.org
