Problem with logging on to red hat
 
I am new to linux and i want to learn it so i went out and bought red hat 7 a while ago and i have just installed it on a old computer i have. it installed fine and it was working fine but now when i start my computer up and i would normaly get like a termanal login then it would change to a gui interface, but now i am not getting this gui interface i am just getting a terminal loggin.

Can some one tel me how to get back into the gui interface please.

If you can login (as a user, not root), try starting the x server by entering the following command at the username$ prompt:

startx

If it does not work, post the error message you get...
