Well actually what's happening is I keep getting a bright blue box with two set's of Garbled text. I don't know what it says. I can click on them but then it goes back to a text or dos like setting asking for the local host. No matter what I type in it then ask's for a password. Then If I type in the password I put in during setup it keep's telling me the local host is incorrect.XWRed1 said:It should have asked you for a password when installing. root is the username, then use your password.
Localhost is the default computer name for your computer, thats all.
I am using Root as the user name. I also had another account setup under "Dennis". But I guess maybe I'm just a little to new to all this. I reformated the HD and installed Mandrake 9.0 on it instead.XWRed1 said:Well, are you using root as your username? You can't just use any old username.
Tried that and I get an error. This is what it say's:nihili said:Try startx
Well I now have Mandrake installed not redhat anymore. Is there a way to change the setting's (verticle sync etc...) after the installation. I've tried changing to similiar monitor's or generic monitors. But nothing seems' to work.Titan386 said:You should be able to simply use the vesa driver and if you know the horizontal and vertical refresh rates of your monitor, configure that as well during installation. The monitor doesn't have to be 'supported' to run the GUI, you just have to configure it.
Well can I get to that from the command prompt. I cannot get into the GUI. Is there any way to see the content's of the Linux partition's from within windows? Then maybe I could edit that file.David said:In the lilo.conf file, look for a line like so:
Change this to:
Then edit the /etc/X11/XF86Config file to change the driver to fbdev and the colour depth to 16 bits, resolution to 1024x768.
If you can post here/email me the XF86Config file I could make the changes and send you back the updated copy?
