local host login


I just finished installing MDK 9.2 and upon rebooting, choosing Linux I get "local host id . I put in my isp user name and password but it says incorrect password. I didn't see this step in the installation book. What does it want me input? Thanks. Typed in my linux user name and password and got this [***@localhost***]$ and that's all.

[***@localhost***]$
means you have logged in as a user. if you want to connect to the internet you need to follow other steps, which i will leave for a pro.

If you installed the X graphical interface type

startx

If it comes up open a terminal through the main menu and type
kppp
it will have options to configure your isp

You might want to look in the Mandrake Harware Database to see if your video card is supported
http://www.linux-mandrake.com/en/fhard.php3

Did you do a full installation?

If you did Mandrake has a program to configure. Type
XFdrake
at the prompt

Did full install I guess(off CD purchased) went ok. When XFdrake typed at prompt I get " -bash:XFdrake: command not found".

You should be able to put in the #1 CD and boot to it. It should ask, after a few steps, if you want to upgrade or install. Choose upgrade then walk through it. I'm not sure it will give you the chance to add software but I think it gives you the chance to configure.

You could also just chose to install and use the same partitions you used before. When it asks you what packages, make sure to select the GUI stuff.

Here is a link to a how to.

That should help. There is also a part that tells what some of the selections are for.

Later

Thumbs up Success!!!!!

I went back and reinstalled. Missed a bunch of stuff. Had to go with KDE as Gnome wasn't in the drop down box. I am guardedly pleased!!! Oh, how do you close tabs on Konquerer? Thanks for everyone's input. raysr

You can go into the start thingy then Configuration then Packaging then Install software. You can then select Gnome and install it too. If you don't have all the CDs, you may not have the option. I can't remember which CD it is on.

Hope that helps.

To the left of the address window there is a little x. That closes a tab.
