Hey, 'name's Emor. I just recently installed Slackware onto a virtual machine(I'm planning on buying a new disc drive and 1 TB HDD with-in the next couple of months and plan on Slackware being my primary OS[right now Mac OS X 10.6 is]), and everything went great.
I then went onto edit the /etc/inittab file in emacs and changed the run-level to 4. I don't know why it's decided that I'd want to boot into KDE when XFCE is installed and in the configuration I selected XFCE but it's not really relevant(I have a WM guide thing open in another tab and will probably be able to change it).
The problem is, as the vague title may suggest, is that it basically freezes when I'm at the log-in screen. The input field for the username is highlighted and blinking, and the cursor it self is visible in the centre of the screen, but it simply doesn't pick up on any input from my keyboard or mouse.
I tried booting up the install CD and logging in as root, mounting sda4(which is the root partition) and editing said file but sudo isn't installed(to my knowledge) on the install disc and when I do the command,
I'm just told permission is denied.
So I don't really know what to do at this point. It'd be okay if I had the command line but I don't.
I'm a bit of a newbie, I read the first 100 pages of the slackware tutorial book but after that thought it'd be a bit redundant, I've googled about my problem and there's been no results, and skim read through all of the book in hope to see if there's a solution, so please don't flame me.
Thank you for any help
EDIT: I don't think it's relevant really since in the command line it recognised input from my trackpad when highlighting text, etc. but in the installation I selected PS/2 input 'cause I wasn't sure whether a trackpad would be PS/2 or USB. In the install it said most laptops and desktops fell under this(I thought serial ports were obsolete but it's the latest install and I'm an idiot with computers so meh).
