fresh install of slackware9.. startx fails.. i dont know where the x86 logs are.
in any case, i have to hit the switch to reboot, i try to get back into linux. a check is forced because the drive wasnt properly unmounted. it does three inode fixes and then just hangs.
windows may crash a lot, but at least you can reboot, run scandisk, and be back in the OS!
any ideas on how to resolve this?
