I am new to linux
I have a computer with linspire on it
I used it two or three times
as i tried to start it yesterday, right after the bios checkup, it said it had not been switched of like it should have been
so there is a multiple choice
when i then choose start linspire, it starts to load, and then, insted of the user login scree, there is a screen with a blue background, with a lot of text reminding me of win dos.
what command do i need to give so that i get back the normal graphical version of linspire ?
Welcome to the forums, Chaoschris!
It will be easier for someone to help you if you can give the content of the text on the blue screen.
well, as i said
it was like dos, a lot of text
the last line, where the cursor was, asked for a username
when i gave in root, it wanted the password, but it wouldnt let me typ, unless i pressed enter beforehand, which then led to a message telling me the password was wrong
i just tried to log in under a user without password
then i tried 'startx'
'cannot open log file '/var/log/Xorg.O.log''
