In an attemt to change screen resolutions I aparently did not check to start x when exiting the video desiplay window. When I rebooted the graphics did not start.
I had this happen once before and got it to run by loging in as root, then password, then .....startx... This time it did not work. I was able to put in ...reboot.... and then booted off the cd and did the upgrade so to configure the x. I badly need to learn how to handle a text type of log in with out panic, is there a simple way to get back into graphics and KDE.
I also now have a long list of choices to edit out of lilo, ...........linux, old linux etc, and windows and old windows.
I probably am one who windows was aimed at, but am just so sick of microshaft and what it stands for and wanted a better way to go. thanks John.
