Load up of mandrake linux
Posted on 2004-09-28
I have already asked this question and got an answer but upon trying the answer I was stumped.
The issue is this. When I turn on the computer I want it to boot up and go right to either a log in screen for KDE 3.0 or go right to KDE 3.0, just like windows (yes i am a windows drone). Currently I have to do the following to get to KDE, at a prompt type in linux then go to windows manager log out then re-log in to KDE - that seems a bit tedious. The previous answer I got was this:
1) Click on the STAR.. slide up to SYSTEM
over to CONFIGURATION
CONFIGURE YOUR COMPUTER
(at this time it will ask you to enter your root password)
you should have a graphical window of a few options:
under BOOT then BOOT LOADER-- you fix the "boot options that you want by taking out or adding boot options)
So I got to the requisite page and these are my options none of which I know anything about:
LILO with graphical menu (currently selected)
LILO with text menu
Under boot device:
Drakboot is set to linux-nonfb (/boot/vmlinuz)
System mode is set to Launch the graphical env when sys starts
and auto login to KDE.
What do I do......
