Question fedora core 6 localhost?


Hey,

I just installed fedora core 6 on my Asus EeePc using text install mode.

I start up my computer and it says

Code:
Fedora Core release 6 (Zod)
Kernal 2.6.18-1.2798.fc6 on an i686

localhost login: <here i put root>
Password: <here I put root password>
then it comes up with this:

Code:
[root@localhost ~]#
How do I add another user and get it to open up fedora?

Thanks

Hi jesseruu, You are at the CLI, try
Code:
#useradd youruser
#passwd youruser
those should add your user and set the password for the user. If by this quote

you mean the Gui, you'll likely need to configure your xserver.
Good luck. ;-)

When you get "root@localhost" prompt you are logged in as root so have you tried typing 'startx' or 'init 5'. It may be starting in runlevel 3. If that works, you will need to edit your /etc/inittab file so you will start in gui mode.
