I'm on the west side of the pond. Wash. DC. I just bought the Mandriva issue. I had 9.2 installed on a second HD and working fine. I did a complete install of your cover cd's a couple times. It always boots to the localhost login. I log in and try to run "kde" and just get error messages. The instuctions say I should get a GUI at login not the linux dos login.

You should try running startx and look at the error messages you get then, unless it works, of course.

You could try logging in as root and running XFdrake, it will run in console mode, but this will allow you to check that it has your correct monitor and graphics card selected, and if not, change them.

Also have my KDE coming up with localhost window and have to login. Before upgrading from 10.1 it was set up so that i would be logged in automatically. Iīve tried to change this through MCC and some KDE specific menus, but the changes donīt see to take. Any ideas? Have a nice afternoon!! Smile
