    Slackware defaults to runlevel 3 (text) so you need to change to boot to gui. Logging in as root, open the file /etc/inittab and you will see the first line without a hash mark (#) has 'id:3... Change the three to a 4, save the file.

    During installation you only create the root user so you have to create another user. Open a konsole and enter, for example" adduser georanson, you will be prompted for a password twice. Don't believe the password shows up even as * so type carefully.

    Don't believe Slackware natively supports Gnome but you can check this site if you want it.
    Slackware C++ Forum - How to install Dropline Gnome onto Slackware 12

    Here's another related post on LQ with relevant information:
    Gnome install?? - LinuxQuestions.org
    I would recommend you read through this link entirely as there is a post from one of the developers of dropline for gnome which is what the first download is.

    Slackware has documentation. There are also README files on the installation cds or dvd. Did you upgrade to 12.1, or are you still using 10? The Slackware Linux Project

    There are shell commands to add new users, and there are shell commands to start the X Window system. You can read some of what to do by reading the email after you have logged on as root. From the shell, you can get help on commands, and you can read man pages. Try "man -k help", "man -k user", "man -k startx".
