Run "startx". If you want to boot with a GUI, then edit /etc/inittab, changing your default runlevel from 3, 4 (i.e. edit the file /etc/inittab and change the line "id:3:initdefault: to id:4:initdefault:"). You'll need to edit the file as root.

Also, please use better thread titles in future and search for similar posts, because this has been answered before.

Before you startx, setup your xorg.conf manually, or automatically by using xorgsetup

Hi,

Welcome to LQ and Slackware!

If you are going to use SlackwareŽ then I suggest that you read 'SlackwareŽ Essentials', the official guide.

Just a few more links to reference;

SlackwareŽ Basics
Linux Documentation Project
Rute Tutorial & Exposition
Linux Command Guide
Linux Newbie Admin Guide
LinuxSelfHelp
Getting Started with Linux

These links and others can be found at 'Slackware-Links' .
More than just SlackwareŽ links!
