    Default Won't start in GUI mode?

    I don't know if this is a bug or if I'm just an idiot but for some reason I can't get the BackTrack 4 live CD to boot into GUI mode. I've tried all the options available (BackTrack Framebuffer, Safe Graphical Mode, etc) and no matter what options I choose it just does what it needs to do to load and stops at the prompt with 'root@bt:~#' waiting for input.

    I'm using a DV9700 laptop and BackTrack 2 and 3 ran quite nicely, now I'm not sure what to do. Any suggestions or any other info you need?

    EmtuK, you might want to learn the basics of Linux before trying to use Backtrack.

    Yeah it looks like I am just an idiot . Though I have been studying Fedora 8 at college for the past year but I still don't really know the ins and outs of Linux. Thanks for the help.
