    Default Ghost OS No KDE but Fluxbox after install???

    This is weird... I haven't installed Backtrack in a while, but I finally got it to recognize my wireless card and DreamLinux had been giving me problems. I used the gui installer on the live cd, set it to "Real" and not Live Install. But I go to boot in and when I ran "startx" the orginal icon dock for Dream Linux came up (which I hadn't seen in almost a year!) and the rest of the screen was black. None of the icons on it worked either. Oddly enough I log back in and type "flux" and there's backtrack!!! I'm sorry, but I hate fluxbox and a big motivator to me coming back was KDE. What do I need to do? Format that partition with the live cd?

    Formatting worked... I didn't think of it until I started typing that last post. Hopefully someone else can use this if they get in the same fix.

    Are you using the beta?
    Of course, if you really wanted to have some fun, go to Wal-Mart late at night and ask the greeter if they could help you find trashbags, roll of carpet, rope, quicklime, clorox and a shovel. See if they give you any strange looks. --Streaker69

    No, it was bt3 final.

    EDIT: My Bad, that was the beta of bt3. I didn't write which it was on this old cd...
