    Default X-System is not working anymore

    Hi,

    I have installed BackTrack v2.0 Final on my notebook. After booting and logging in with root/toor I type startx, but instead of the X-System the Flux-System is loaded. What can I do to start the X-System again?

    That command didn't work but I found out that I can start the right desktop (X-Window KDE) by typing init 4. Typing startx still results in starting Fluxbox. Why?? How can I fix the startx command?


    Another question: since I installed Grub (because I also have a WinXP partition) BackTrack doesn't use its nice bootscreen anymore. This is not a serious problem, but I would like to know how I can get this bootscreen back (looks nicer than just white text on a black background ^^)

    Rather than hijack this thread, (the op's problem is different from your own), you should start your own. Good luck to Each of You.

    That's Grub's boot screen, you should be able to edit it. Cheers, Kurt
