    I was planing to dual boot with both KDE and Gnome. The fix-vesa command does not appear to exist in BT 5. So anyone got a work around?

    If anyone is still having this problem they should check out:

    When you are trying to solve your problems remember that Backtrack is Linux based and people on related distros have probably had the same problems before you.

    First off not sure how all this posting works. I have always managed to get all the backtracks working on my laptop.
    But BT5 is having problems at startX
    First off I burned the KDE 64 to a CD when booting you can pick default and all them others. The only one that will boot up and start X with out any problem is is "default with no network card".
    When working with the test CD I installed it with no problem.
    When making my first boot with out the CD.
    I dont get that the nice graphical load screen like grub I think that is what you call it.
    Moving on , so I StartX and get all them nice Japanese writings and it crashes back to the console mode.
    it will crash with one " 1 error xkbomp"
    I Google the error and found its a keyboard problem .
    Even tried adding a user nothing.
    After a little searching what to do
    I tried ( fix-splash) that did get the graphical page to start when booting.
    But (fix-splash800) did nothing for me .
    As well as every thing I could find on line about this problem nothing.
    Also the way my internet is set up I can not down load or get on line tell I can get into X to start my free wifi. So Im running off the CD now tell I can solve this little problem.
