running suse 9.2 gives me text not graphic interface


Hi,

When i run Suse 9.2 pro I get this list of text about software and with complete in green letters after it

Then there are 2 lines that ask me for my username and password, when i fill those in it says : thank you for logging in, have a nice day (i believe so)

but how do i go to the suse i know, with the kde desktop ?

Cheers

What happens when you type startx after logging in? You may have set your default runlevel to text mode.

From the command line, try starx, startkde, or init 5 (which will boot into the default GUI).

Why wine notepad? Minesweeper? They both have Linux alternatives to my knowledge. I'm not sure of what WoW is but I have never wined anything off the cd. Is your system a dual boot machine? If so you should be able to wine just about anything wine can run from your windows partition.

no it was just a test, that notepad and minesweeper, but yes i got dual boot

So i got windows and linux on my system but when i run my wow wich is installed on windows it gives me errors, i think it has to do with the directx version

Wich version of directx has the win wich is included on the suse dvd?

Cheers

ps this is the WoW error

Quote:
linux:/windows/C/Program Files/World of Warcraft # wine WoW.exe
wine: could not load L"Z:\\windows\\C\\Program Files\\World of Warcraft\\WoW.exe" as Win32 binary
linux:/windows/C/Program Files/World of Warcraft #
edit: when i try to wine mediaplayer it gives me this error as well, is this becuz my linux is 64bit and my windows is 32 bit?


Cheers Tester

I'm a newbie too, so this may not be 100% correct... but from my understanding, complicated programs do not work normally in wine (WoW or any other recent game would DEFINITLY qualify for coplicated)

Thats where something like Crossover Office or, in your case, Cedega wold come in handy. I know you already said you cant do this, so, while there is a way to do it... it is far more complicated than anything you or I could understand. So it looks like you might have to stick to UT2004 and your Xbox sorry
