Hi again all,
I've got rid of AOL, and am looking to replace windows completely on my slow internet pc.
This is all on a P2 266 with Mandrake 8
In KDE (KPackage): I installed (I think) "glibc-debug-2.3.2-2mdk.i586.rpm" and "zlib-devel-1.1.3-11mdk.i586.rpm". They wanted some dependancies I couldn't be arsed to find, so I installed them with the ignore dependancies option.
Once installed, I tried to install another RPM, but starting KPackage gave me an error of "Cannot start KPackage".
Odd I thought. I rebooted, and tried to get into X with "startx".
The monitor changes resolution, and a blue screen with the busy mouse cursor in the centre appears. After about a second or two, it resets back to bash.
There is no visible error message there, and the last thing i don't understand is "using vt 7".
I've uploaded my XFree86.0.log file to here
, but as far as I can see there seems to be no problem there.
Thanks in advance
