hello, i just installed xwindows via apt get and then compiled and installed fluxbox, they run great, but its ar run lvl 2 and x windows seems to start up automatically still, i get that Debian window against the default X backdrop asking for login and password.
and hitting crtl+alt+"backspace" and all it does is reload that screen. lol how do i compleatly exit X so i can install nvidia drivers?
I don't know where else to post this. I am doing it here since it a fresh thread and I have gotten good answers in teh past.
After some work I finally have Debian (Woody) installed on a reasonably fast machine with large disk and good dsiplay. I have seen some good performance once things work properly. My problem is I need to do a lot of tinkering anytime I want things to work properly.
I boot to an x-login screen and can choose among the various window managers. The only way I was able to get DHCP to run automatically was to insert a script in my rc.2 directory with a "pump" command. I needed to fool around with my /etc/host file.
I can bring up Gnome and my apps reasonabty quickly.
MY main problem now is starting up KDE 3.2. I login and choose KDE as my window manger. It says "starting system services" (or something close to that). It then goes to the desktop background and either never brings up my desktop or just sits there for 5 minutes and eventually brings it up. I have seen in other threads that this may be some kind of network conflict and that I should change some file so that they all are in sync with hostname the same.
Does anyone have any ideas?
This is kind of frustraing since when it works, it seem sto be pretty good.
Also, I tried installing printers using KUPS and tried to http:// to some port and was unable to communicate with the port. This will be next on my list.
