trouble logging in when new install of mepis or suse 9.2
what am i doing wrong with suse 9.2 or mepis 3.3? i installed or booted to the mepis cd, it showed the installation of files and then went to a login prompt. I entered user = root and password = root and then the screen said have fun? but goes back to another command prompt that looks like this......root-tty?! or something and it wants a command entered in. where do I go from here? Suse 9.2 is doing the same exact thing......how do I get into the linux gui?
my install of suse 9.2 and 9.3 (live cd) also came up with about 5 errors during install (ie. openoffice can't install, etc.). wha'ts up with that?
my pc is a dell laptop 6000d, new, 1.6p4m, 512ddr2, 128 ati pc express card.
any help is greatly appreicated!!!!
If I buy the full cd from Bestuy for Suse 9.3 will it work on my Dell? Is there any guarantee of that?
