Maybe some additional steps would be useful to prevent swears and cries...

First, you SHOULD really add a normal, regular user to log in with. The use of root account is really... dangerous. Nothing else to say about that.

Code:

useradd -g users -G audio,users -m -p PASSWORD -s /bin/bash YOURLOGIN
Second, you should review the excellent xorg.conf file and edit it according to your hardware and needs. Normally, and if you have a sufficient knowledge of X11 servers, you'll probably end up with a suitable xorg.conf in a couple of minutes. If not, I suggest you to use the xorgconfig utility which will help you step by step to configure the X11 server.

Code:

xorgconfig
Third, edit inittab to enable the X11 server (and KDE) on boot :

Code:

vim /etc/inittab
and replace the following line :

Code:

id:3:initdefault:
by

Code:

id:4:initdefault:
You're done :)

A very good place to look for configuring Slackware is slackbook.org.
