Isn't that frustrating now? What desktop? Well, if at all you have browsers, you can try typing:
Code:
konqueror &
Code:
nautilus &
You have installed X?
I have, till now, not understood what you are trying to do

Thats the reason why we advised you to install basic components at least. Now, you may be in trouble, if not, you may well end up wasting a lot of time.

well if your running from a terminal and not at level 6 you will never get uml to run a GUI browser. at the root promt type startx
if it fails read why. if you have the xorg installed type xorrcfg
and configure your xX windows. after you have done this type startx again if it fails go back and type xorgconf this time you will be asked a bunch of question you better know the anwers or fake it real good save the config and type start x. next you will need alot of stufff like the qt libraries and pango gtk2 etc.if you have all that cool. Fire fox and any GUI browser is a x-application thats why you need to be level 6. how by typeing startx. so now you need to get a coppy of fire fox and save it to root file first
Unzip the package
gunzip firefox-2.0.tar.gz
then
Untar the package
tar -xvf firefox-2.0.tar
then find the install script looks like this and type with this command ./ ok ./install.sh
after that type in any console when running the x windows. and you beter have a desk top enviroment. like kde gnome if all els fail and you like the experimental linux you are using and you want to run it in GUI get puppy linux. works on the same princible its a 100 mb down load and comes running with firefox or seamonkey. If you are asking theses question you should not be be using uml.
uml IS FOR LINUX hacks that know all the comands and understand compiling experimental kernels.good luck.best way to learn linux with and have the best stable system is to use the first distro ever.Slackware it is the best bar none to understand and use linux. and still be a GUI or a unix promt system. I comes with everything you need to get online to webbrowser. and sence it is for real linux hackers it has 99 percent of all the dependencies all ready installed good day.

Drakeo, there are several things wrong with your post. Firstly, by "level 6" do you mean "runlevel 6"? If so, that's incorrect because 6 is for rebooting the system. Usually, you have an X server in runlevel 5 (or 4 if you're using Slackware). Secondly, running "startx" does not change your runlevel as your post seems to imply. Thirdly, there is no install.sh script in the Firefox tarball. If you want it installed in some special place, you have to do that yourself. Don't get me started on spelling and stuff..
