when you were installing mandrake you should have setup the not pre-setup things. it makes it a lot easier.

Post Yep

That summary page is really important. I setup my network, test my monitor and bootloader etc before I finish. Makes the whole thing different when you do it there.

I must admit, I had to install several times before I got it right. I don't know if it was the system or me.

You may want to start a new thread with that error message. Something like " x wont start, xinit: No such process, server error Mandrake 9.1". I'm sure someone will see it and say 'I know how to fix that'. I bet it can be fixed. Me, I'd reinstall and make sure to configure all that stuff, especially the monitor part.

Well, I'm fixin to start compiling Gentoo. Slackware is next. he he he he he

Question That may be the problem

If you installed it on one system and then transfered to another computer, all your hardware will be wrong. That could be fun.

Can you not install on the system you intend to have it on?

Lightbulb That's what is wrong

'x' won't start if it can't recognize the video card. You are going to need good guru help. You will likely have to reconfigure your system to make it work.

Can you copy it to a hard drive and then install from there? There is some info that you can do that. That may be a better plan. I think you just copy the CDs over and install from there. May can copy in another system and go from there.

Not sure, just thinking.

Question Another question

When you installed, did you use all three CDs? You may not have installed x at all if not. If that's the case you will need to install that. I can't remember which CD it's on. Should be able to to it, but I don't know how. Never did it that way.

I'll google for your error and see what I find. www.google.com/linux

Back Later. Post if you get more info.

Post Look at these links.

http://www.linuxquestions.org/questi...threadid=35019
http://www.linuxquestions.org/questi...threadid=39901

Remember, Linux is Linux in command line for the most part. Try some of those commands and see what you get. I've never done this so I'm just going to have to point unless someone jumps in with better info.

Hope that helps. Post if it doesn't.

You might also check the Errata link on Mandrake's homepage. There is an issue with AMD's K6 processors that is supposed to be able to be worked around by hitting F1 at splash screen, and typing:
patch
with a floppy that has a patch copied to it in the drive. It didn't help with my k6-2, but maybe will with yours.
