I just reinstalled my entire pc by downloading the 3 ISO's of Mandrake Linux 9.1 and deleting all partitions, creating a new one and installing Linux on it. By deleting all partitions EVERYTHING is deleted right? So, linux should be a clean install.
But now, booting linux for the first time after installation, I see the black cursor for one sec and then linux textmode asking me for a login. So i login and type startx to start the GUI again, but then i see the black cursor for a sec again and then textmode again saying with some logfile blabla and:"waiting for X server to shut down".
Problem is i had this problem too with my previous installation, but i thought i screwed something up in my configuration last time so i deleted all partitions in the hope i'd delete the problems as well, but i guess the problems r just part of the mandrake 9.1 installation. Fact is however, when i installed mandrake for the very first time it DID work...
