    Ijust installed Slackware 10.1 but now i have a problem


    Hi,

    I have just installed Slackware 10.1 but LILO was unable to instal, I do not know the reason. So I created a bootdisk and when boot from the ploppy boot disk I get a black screen loading all my devices I think but than it asks me to loging, so I just log in as a user that a created using adduser but thats all i can do i log in but i just see the black screen and I do not know how to get to my desktop. When I installed slackware I only created two partions a Swamp Partion and Linux one, I do not know if i did right.

    I am really new to Slackware, can anyone please help me with this.

    Thank You.

    This should do it:
    Code:
    startx
    Do this command after logging in. It startx X11, the graphical part of the system. It works _only_ if you have installed the X11 package. (I think it's installed by default.)

    Have fun!

    Depending on your setup you might also need to configure your video settings. You can either edit the /etc/X11/xorg.conf file, or (personally I think this is easier) you can run the command
    Code:
    xorgconfig
    and it will guide you through the configuration process.
