Virtual PC 2007 and slackware 12.0 - KDE
Hello everybody,

I hope to be in the right forum.

First time caller and really newbie on Linux so be cool/patient/indulgentÖ.:confused:
Iím deseperatly trying to install Slackware 12.0 using virtual PC2007 environment.
Installation is fine, (full install to avoid missing parts) but problem begins when I try to setup KDE DESKTOP/graphical environment. :scratch:

Iím not able to make it works !!!
Depending on thousand configurations tried, either the graphic interface is coming but mouse is not working, or I canít start graphical environment and get errors.

Iíve tried running :
xorgcfg -textmode
xwmconfig and selecting KDE or whatever.

Actually, when I start X, Iíve an error (EE) No drivers available or (EE) no screen found.
I understand that Iím not able to setup/find the correct configuration. (I'm maybe wrong)

(From Virtual PC help) Virtual PC emulates graphic card as follow:
S3 Trio 32/64 PCI with 8 MB Video RAM

And I selected mouse in ďAutoĒ mode (or P/S2)

As hardware devices are all the same and emulated by Virtual PC, Iím guessing if somebody as already done the correct configuration to share the /etc/X11/ file.

Any and all helps/suggestions/comments will be greatly appreciated!

Many thanks in advance,

Ok, I'm now working with vmWARE player, quite easy to install....
Virtual PC 2007 is fine for Windows environment...Not yet done for Linux (at least slackware 12.0)
