Default Re: Noob(me) phases to linux mandrak 9.0 and needs help

Well, if the install configured the X server then you should be able to get X going by logging in as root and issuing an init 5 command.
If that works, then you need to edit (as root) the /etc/inittab file and turn on the default boot level to 5. Nearer to top of file and the line should be something like: id:5:initdefault:
I suspect that the default run level is set to 3 and not 5 .

If the above init 5 fails, try to run startx . This will at least tell you if X is configured.

Good luck
