Hello! I just installed Slackware 9.0, with the install option where everything on the disk is put on the hard drive, the 2GB install.
That worked out quite well, i thought, i did a clean reboot, and Slack started right up!
I logged in as root, did "startx". The display did some funky stuff, flickering and whatnot, and after a few seconds I got a GNOME splash screen! Way cool! except half a second later it kicks me back to the terminal and tells me that there are no fonts, i should edit my fonts.conf, and more information can be found on fontconfig (3) man page. well, i do a man fontconfig, and it is not found. I went into a chat room and someone told me to do this:
xinit /usr/bin/kdestart -- :0
I did that, but I don't think I have kde on my system, so that didn't work.
I did the same thing for gnome-wm:
xinit /usr/bin/gnome-wm -- :0
and i got the same results as before: a splash screen, and kicked back to the terminal looking for fonts. I'm not sure what i can do...
i need some
help, i guess!
Thanks in advance!
