Ok, I just finished installing slackware, and when I login as root I get the "root@darkstar" prompt. During installation I told it to use Fluxbox as my default because I only have 64 mb of ram. Well I need to know a command to input into root@darkstar or else I am stuck in the command prompt. I tried x, but it brought me to a grey screen with an X as the cursor. Please help I need to know what to type!!!
You're not from AAS, are you? Anyhow, I think a simple X will invoke the x server with no scripts. Useful for testing. However startx will invoke x server observing with the xinitrc script (in your homedir, should exist as .xinitrc). This file also specifies your window manager, so you should see fluxbox there.
That's all in the slackware book as gbonvehi says, but I reckoned I'd extract seeing as I saw the nick.
Tink, definitely, being stuck with the command line is quite a good place to be!
