xorg error installing Mandrake 10.2
I am installing Mandrake v10.2 on a system with a VIA epia V mainboard with 533mhz, 256mb ram, and an onboard trident cyberblade 3d video card
I was at the end of the setup where you choose your hardware. I clicked on the GRAPHICAL INTERFACE configuration where you choose your video card. I found mine but when I clicked OK it said that my xorg configuration was broken. the setup looked like it ended right, but when I started the machine back up it loaded for over 5 minutes and took me to a command prompt. my password and everything worked but all I have is a command prompt with no graphical interface. so far I have tried reinstalling, choosing KDE workstation as a graphical interface, choosing all the graphical enviornments, typing startx into the command prompt, and choosing any random video card.
How can I repair Xorg from a command prompt and is xorg the only problem with the graphical enviornment?
any help with this would be apreciated as I am new to linux. I have reserarched it alot and am migrating from an unstable XP pro. Thanx!
