I dl and am runing RR4 and first let me say it is the best I've seen.
I am as n00b as a newbie can be when it comes to linux but in the last 2 weeks i have tryed over 20 different distros looking for one that a n00b like myself can run and I have found it here with RR4.
RR4 does everything I'm looking for in a distro and it does it with ease.
So major thumbs up.
Now as I said several times already I am a major n00b and have ran into a problem that I cannot figure out on my own.
When I install to drive and but up I do not get a graphical log in, instead its a text log in screen and i input my user and pass but then it goes to a $ symbol I saw in another topic here whereyou said to enter xterm and i did that but then i get a msg saying display isnt set.
I have done the install numerous times already and at the end of choices i have chosen different things such as xdm and so on.
Could someone tell me please what i need to set in these areas.
I would like to have the KDE desktop and I am installing with the entire DVD to hard drive
I know n00bs can be a pain in the ass but I ask that you guys help this n00b as i desperately want to get away from windows
Thank You in advance
Sounds to me like you have troubles with xgl. Download and install the rr4 without xgl here: http://linuxtracker.org/torrents-details.php?id=1372 and you should be fine
