i had to reinstall mandrake 9.1. I loaded into mandrake the first time just fine , then i went into windows98se. After that i wanted to finish configureing mandrake to my specifications but all i was given was a command prompt with local host login. How can i get to the desktop(s) and make it so it wont go to command prompt again.
he might get confused by that because he said set it to 5, and some distros it is 4, but buddy specifically said he uses mdk9.1 which uses runlevel 5 to startx, so he might be thinking hrmm what one should i try first, ok i will pick 4, then he is confused, end of story.
not good with sarcasm i guess...
the point of the matter is, is that if your are wise enough to know that some distros use runlevel 4 then i would think you would be wise enough to know that mdk uses runlevel 5 to startx...the reason i said he may get confused is because you gave him irrelevant information by saying runlevel 4, and he may try that runlevel without success....yes i know all he would have to do is reboot and put 5 in the inittab, but its just the fact that you through 4 in the explanation....
