Mandrake 10.1 Offiical Again


Hello,
After fighting Fedora I decided I liked Mandrake better so I went back into my Mandrake install redid it and got rid of Fedora. I can get into GUI by booting to fail safe. But I can not get into Gnome. If I boot into fail safe and run init 3 and then type kde it will load up the kde interface.. Kind of annoying..
Anyway to fix it?

thanks,

Dustin

Why are you logging in in safe mode? To start GNOME while in runlevel 3, you need to create a file called ~/.xsession and insert the line "exec gnome-session" (without quotes). You would then just need to run "startx" and GNOME should load.
