    It's hard to say. Has it ever worked for you, or did you install something else and then find that X started to crash? Faulty RAM might cause a crash, or buggy software, but now I'm just speculating.

    If you could start Mandriva up in console mode, you could check your log files in /var/log And you could also type dmesg and read some of the output ... It's strange because as long as your installation went well, X shouldn't crash. It might be just one package/system process doing the damage.

    X probs

    Hi - I would be willing to give this a shot - but you must be patient because of language dificulties ...

    Please answer these questions:

    1. when you start your machine what comes up - KDE? Console?

    2. Have you ever had success with KDE - ie does it run fine until ??? and then crashes OR does it crash when you try to start it?
