See here's my problem: I can't even log in or do anything. Here's what happens:
I select 'linux' from the boot prompt. mandrake then starts, how do I describe this, loading up a bunch of 'stuff' with percents next to it that start adding up to 100% until it says "OK
". It does this for awhile and then at one point the screen flickers out.
Is there a way to login or get access to the root? I've tried alt F2 and Ctrl F2 but it just ignores whatever I type and keeps adding running through lines.
Furthermore, once I get access to the root, how do I actually edit Xfree86?
