turd login


No, I am not being funny. I am trying to get a computer going that was given to me. It has Linux Mandrake installed on it but when it's loading it goes to "turd login". I don't know what that is...and can I get past that somehow so it can load up completely?

Bonnie, welcome to LQ. I have moved your thread to Linux-Newbie as this thread is to discuss the tutorial "How To Ask A Question".

Sounds as though it hasn't picked up your graphics card. Log in as your user and then type startx.

Actually having read your post again, can you get the login details from the person who gave you the PC? If not, you may be better off reinstalling from scratch to ensure that you are fully aware of what is on your PC.
