GUI will not load


Hello,

When I startx from the CLI it appears it's going to load the GUI but then it reverts back to white background CLI and have to reboot. This is fresh install. Any ideas?

Thanks!
Eddie

please READ the Linux questions guide on posting
http://www.linuxquestions.org/linux/...Ask_a_Question

we can not help until we know the NEEDED information

What operating system are you installing ?
single boot ( only this unknown OS )?
or a dual boot with some other OS ?
or is this a Virtual install in a VM ?

Also what is the hardware ?
is this a headless SERVER install ?
or on a Desktop ?
or on a Laptop?
or on a "handheld "tablet" ?
