I got a small problem, after installation.
 
Well I boot up my computer with Slackware installed on it. It loads loads load then it stops and ask me my "darkstar login" which is root then my password which i enter. Then it should me a mail message and then it leaves me to:

root@darkstar:~# <here i type stuff>

but nothing boots up, what do I do?

Welcome to LQ.

What do you mean nothing boots up? If you get to a bash prompt then your computer has booted.

Are you looking for a GUI or something?

Bruce Hill 10-03-2004 02:55 PM

It's somehow old so some programs may change like XFree86 now it's Xorg, but it's very usefull anyway.

What do you mean by "laggy"?

What video card do you have?

You change resolution by editing /etc/X11/xorg.conf
use an editor, and you have to be logged in as root, super user,
so if you have the command prompt type su and then enter your
root password. If the prompt has a $ you're normal user, but if
it has a # you're root, super user. NEVER run your system as
root. If you haven't created a normal user yet, you must.

http://www.tldp.org/HOWTO/Bash-Prompt-HOWTO/index.html

and most other stuff at TLDP (The Linux Documentation Project), though I
find much of it is very old, and sometimes outdated, the docs are usually
pretty good.

Edit: This is a good site to get you introduced to the world of Linux...
