    Hi gunbladeiv!

    Can you give us a better idea what problems you are encountering? Tell us what attempts you've made to get X going and what errors you are getting. The basic install should have x windows built right in. After making a regular user account, sign in and the startx command should bring up blackbox.

    It'll also be helpful to know your video card and monitor make and model. For video card, you can do the:
    Code:
    /usr/sbin/lspci
    command.

    (==) using default built-in configuration
    (EE) open /dev/fb0: No such file or directory
    (II) Module "ddc" already built-in
    /usr/lib/X11/xinit/xinitrc: line 29: xclock: command not found
    /usr/lib/X11/xinit/xinitrc: line 30: xterm: command not found
    /usr/lib/X11/xinit/xinitrc: line 31: xterm: command not found
    /usr/lib/X11/xinit/xinitrc: line 32: exec: xterm: not found

    waiting for X server to shut down FreeFontPath: FPE "/usr/lib/X11/fonts/misc efcount is 2, should be 1; fixing.
    and actually i'm using virtualbox to get used to the CRUX system first before installing it on my new box. mind helping?
    here is the lspci turn out.
