I replaced Fedora 5 with Debian yesterday, because Fedora doesn't have alot of stuff and noticed stuff i was trying to wasn't supported in fedora.
So after i reboot it comes up in the command line to login, i do and it stays in command line. Looking at the linux pardon with window, and random luck, i saw several things that indicated that there was the graphic user interface thing.
I asked a friend at school about it(hes a linux genius and carries several live cd with him all the time O_o). He said to type in startx
i get home and try it and i get an error. I look at the log in windows and search to quick find http://lists.debian.org/debian-lapto.../msg00005.html
i look in the /etc/X11/XF86Config-4 and find this.
Identifier "Generic Video Card"
im not shure if i enterd something wrong on install, since i didn't really know what i was doing.
My computer is an eMachine w3115
Chipset: NVIDIAŽ GeForceŽ 6100
(as Emachines sucks, there isn't even a page for the computer)
is that the right driver name, as i belive nv = NVIDIA
I can edit any files with windows if needed. Thanks for anyones help in advance.
linux abilitys = low(i guess i can do more than other people, but thats computer experince and a higher iq than most people)
