My Mandriva starts at bash prompt ??
Now my problem is that when Mandrake is booted, the X11 system does not start. I am simply dumped to the bash prompt to login. Once I have logged in, I have to type "KDE" to get into the graphical interface. StartX does not work and produces the following messages:
configuration file "/etc/X11/xorg.conf"
using vt 7
(EE) AIGLX: DRI module not loaded
anyway, logging in and typing "kde" works to get it running, but when it is time to shutdown or log off, it only "logs off" and the computer does not go back to the prompt or shutdown... It's in never-never land somewhere. The only way I can get it to shutdown far enough to cleanly unmount the FS's is to login as root and use the "poweroff" command. All these "workarounds" are OK for me, but my windows-loving household (whom I am trying to wean), won't tolerate this (besides, I don't want to give them the root password to shutdown).
Mandrake 10.1 had this nice little login screen with everybody's name and Icon, etc, and they just clicked on their name and logged in. When they were done, there were options to end the session, shutdown, restart, etc... After I installed Mandriva 2007, it is gone. I tried to "Configure your computer" => "System" => "Choose the display manager...". It then tells me a brief description of the X11 Display manager (which sounds like what I am missing). I click OK to that, and it then says that the package needs to be installed and asks if I want to install it.. I click OK to that.. After a short "Please wait" box, it says "Could not install the package!".
I have searched and searched the internet for this issue, but no one seems to have had this problem before.
