Mandrakelinux 10.0 Problem
 
Hello. I have a computer with Windows XP on it and I recently installed Mandrakelinux 10.0 Official on it. The installation process seemed to go fine but when the OS tries to load the KDE interface it fails to load it. What loads is the command prompt. I also tried playing around with the resolution and tested it several times with different resolutions and all I get is a black screen that just sits there forcing me to physically reboot the computer. I have an NVIDIA GeForce2 GO. Please any help will be greatly appreciated.

try to reinstall it and when you get summary list, make sure to check that the installation program choose the right graphic and check the radio button that says whether you like to statup with graphic env.

check the log messages:

/var/log/XFree86.0.log
/var/log/messages

perhaps you find important info there ...

I tried the reinstallation and it chose the right graphic configurations. I also checked for the interface to come up automatically. Still nothing though. I don't know if this will solve the problem but I saw several posts about the new 6111 driver. The drivers I have are the ones for my WinXP OS. So should I install that driver?
