Mandrake won't boot GUI
Hey guys, I'm a complete Linux n00b and Mandrake 10.1 is the first distro I've used. After installing it yesterday, I have had no problem loading into the OS and doing what I want to do with the GUI, but now when I boot into Linux it brings me to a black command prompt where it asks me to login. After I login, all I can do is use commands, does anyone know how I can boot back into the GUI that I was using? I believe it was KDE...
what is the default runlevel? 3?

Tell me about your findings. :)
or after logging in type 'startx'

u can also try emacs, if u installed it.
change the 3 into a 5.
u'll need 2 press F10 2 give u the menu options.
You have to configure X.
As root, use the command XFdrake
