    Default [Resolved] When use startx, flux starts..

    Backtrack 2 was always working for me. This day, I thought by myself, I should test flux..
    So I start flux at the beginning, after typing my root and my password.

    Now I am in flux box GUI. Brrr, I thought: where are I ended in up??

    So I open terminal and type:
    Code:
    startx
    Don't start the startx GUI, Duh!

    So I reboot, and I want to startx (and I have try it several times, rebooting as much times) but when I type:
    Code:
    startx
    then it starts flux..

    What do I have to change? (So it starts startx)

    Default Fixed

    I have fixed it now, I had to turn of sytem, remove my bootable USB-Stick. Wait a minute so that the system memory is cleared. And then I could power BT2 up, and it working as it should.

    Thank You for stating what fixed it. A lot of people dont which, in turn, does not help the forum at all.
    I felt like bending the bars back, and ripping out the window frames and eating them. yes, eating them! Leaping, leaping, leaping! Colonics for everyone! All right! You dumb*sses. I'm a mental patient. I'm *supposed* to act out!

    Cool

    Got it

    After you log in but before you start your window manager:

    "grep fluxbox .xinitrc"
    If it shows a reference to fluxbox
    "rm .xinitrc"
    "startx"
