Problems Initiating startx
I just installed Slackware today using GNOME as the GUI. During setup I went full install for complete package... In this case, I happened to use the installation tut. at http://www.bitbenderforums.com/vb22/...?postid=311808 and partitioned my drives accordingly. Instead of going KDE, however, I decided to go GNOME. My sound card and network is set up fine and I have my account working well. Logging in as root is not a problem. Other commands also seem to work fine. When I attempt to leave command line by using startx, it comes up with fatal errors. Am I using the wrong start code or are there files missing? Could it be that my Virtual Memory is set to low? Im running 768Megs out of an accepted gig, so It's not a RAM problem... Any help would be appreciated.
Re: Problems Initiating startx
you might need to make lilo aware that you have that much memory, you could add append="mem=768M" to lilo.conf and then run lilo to update the mbr, if this fails to achieve anything then it's almost certainly not a ram problem.
