Hi all

I am kinda new to Linux and this forum. I downloaded the mandrake 9.0 ISO file to 'try before I buy' - I have ran through setup and install but I have no GUI - anyone shed any light on this?

I just cant see where I am going wrong - I thought it was just run and install - I have searched google but it returns a load of unuseful/dead links.....

plz help


(I can use the CLI but I want to see how the GUI compares to Windows

ok, sice you know about KDE and Gnome already we'll assume you already knew about the startx command and/or using the init 5 command to start xwindows. what may have happened (it's happened to me in the past anyway) was that during the cuddly little GUI install you may have accidentally skipped selecting either GUI for installation. since you've only been working with the OS for a short time i figure it's safe to say you dont have any large ammounts of important files hanging out on your linux partition. I'd back up any personal files you've got to your medium of choice and re-run the installation just to make sure you didn't miss anything.
