Fedora 7 startup problems prompts login and pass screen
I installed Fedora in text mode because graphical mode stalls out at like 65% of "searching for dependencies" and it installs fine. I just ran through basic workspace and productivity install. I reboot like it asks me to and it runs through the usual checklist of things that need to be green in order to start :P It does.
I get dropped to a screen that says login, then pass. I never made a login name and when I hit enter it just brings that same prompt up again. Its a shell command prompt. I type root for login name and my pass and I can login as root. I really dont know much about this, I was hoping to get a GUI display like I had with Fedora 4 when I used that.
Maybe I screwed something up during the install? I tried to yuminstall KDE and GNOME but it says they're already installed. How do I get to a GUI so I can start using linux? Im really new.
A friend says type startx. But im not sure what that does and I cant troubleshoot from home because I have no internet there. Fast replies appreciated.
PS: I downloaded i386 on F7 but it says it installed i686 fc6.whatever. Is that a problem or is that standard?
