I recently wiped out my old slackware 10.1, and partition the hard drive... first installed xp window... and after that then installed slackware 10.2, now the dual boot works fine.
Since i am using the laptop, the keyboard mouse doesnt work as it broken... so currently i have an USB mouse plugged in etc...
when i got the Xorg set up etc.. then add user etc... last thing to use is an user to startx even i have try root startx... but an error comes up.
_XSERVTransSocketOpen COTSServer: Unable to open socket for inet6
_XSERTransOpen: Transport open failed for inet6/slackware:0
