Mandrake 10.1 Community install hangs at X login
I'm working on installing Mandrake 10.1 and everything seems to be going great every time I do it, every combinatin of ways, except that when I finally get everything done, get the GUI configured from install, reboot, etc., it eventually brings up the desktop background.
Once it brings up the desktop background (only the desktop background, not a login box or anything), it loads for a couple of sends then puts what looks like a SECOND, smaller desktop background on the top left corner of the screen. After that, nothing happens. I can't login, I can't get out of x, can't hit ctrl-alt-del, nothing. All I can do is move the mouse and turn the keyboard lights on and off.
Why I'm asking here:
I don't see anything similar from looking on the internet, so have any of you ran across something like this? Oh, and by the way, the testing of the GUI from the installation disk works fine. (I can click on the box that pops up, and I assume that uses X in the same way.)
I am using the radeon drivers from the Community cd for my Radeon 9000. I don't get any fails from the bootup process. Since it automatically tries to bring me to X but I can't do anything else in there, I can't check logs either.
Same thing happened to me last night.
Have you had any luck asking about this?
I moved from 10.0 to 10.1 and it worked fine, and then last night I tried to reinstall using all of the packages and it just hangs when it gets to KDE. There's nothing on the screen except the KDE background and I can't do anything. I haven't had time to look into it much but it seems like a lot of people have freeze problems with KDE and MDK10.1, so hopefully there's a solution out there.
