    Default Not able to start up backtrack 4 with startx

    Hi all, I am new to this forum.

    I downloaded backtrack 4 DVD image and burned onto a DVD-RW
    I am able to boot into the menu and select the first option (1024x768) one.
    And I waited until it gets to root so I typed startx.

    But then the DVD didnt load after I have typed startx and I couldn't get into the desktop.

    But I have tried with my macbook pro and I am able to get into the desktop and use firefox/terminal..

    My PC Config:
    Intel E6750 original clock with 4GB RAM
    Gigabyte EP35-DS3R
    ATI 2600XT 256MB DDR3
    AR5005G wireless card.

    Don't know what is wrong with my PC...

    Anyone can help me out?
    Thanks

    Kevin

    Hello,

    You could try running dexconf before startx that might help you out.

    cheers!
