when i enter root in the username and its
password i get error that

cannot start the session due to internal

when i press i get msg that

Your session only lasted less than 10 seconds. If you have not logged out
yourself, this could mean thatthere is some installation problem or that
you may be out of diskspace. try logging in with one of the failsafe session
to see if you can fix this problem.


and when i clicked in details

error session_child_run: Could not exec /etc/x11/xnit/xsession default

but when checked it with slax live cd there is no

Then, do the following:

1. When you boot your OS, does the graphical Login screen appear? If yes, press Ctrl+Alt+F1. Login as root.
2. Type the command:
Code:
useradd your-name-as-user
exit
3. Then, press Ctrl+Alt+Bkspace
4. Enter the username that you used and login
5. OR after step 2, just login as root again by typing 'su' and type
Code:
startx
OR
startkde
whichever is appropriate.

Post if you still have problems. Actually, Fedora 7 asks for to create a user. I do not know how you missed that step! You may want to re-install the OS if you still have problems!

I actually advise you to 'Google' before posting anything. If you do not get it there, you can post it here. To run a *.bin file, you enter the following commands in a terminal after changing to the directory of the *.bin file:
Code:
sudo chmod a+x *.bin
Code:
./*.bin
You need some codecs to play *.mp3 files. You can install these by searching in the package manager list of the OS.

And to change the screen resolution, you gotta edit '/etc/X11/xorg.conf' file as root. There are thousands of threads on these things. Please consider searching on the forum before posting!

Dude, before installing from the source codes (mostly tarred files), you got to extract them. Either use the command line or the GUI version. Once you do this, on the command line, change to the directory of the particular folder which you untarred. Then, type the following commands (mostly):

Code:
./configure
make
su
make install
Actually, the source code may be even python, shell scripts etc. Then you got to be putting in a different set of commands. You just have to compile the files using the compiler meant for that language.

Dude,

The questions that you are asking cannot be put under "Fedora 7 installation problems". Please post them on a different thread.

Message to moderators: Please move this to a suitable forum. The user is not posting questions on a relevant forum.
