    Default Can only get to a GUI with debug, but no input devices work

    I think this new BT5 was a waste of bandwidth to download. Both the 32 and 64 bit KDE versions will only make it to the GUI through debug mode, and then I get to stare at a desktop while my common Logitech keyboard/mouse combo, that did function in BT4, just don't work.

    The fact that only debug mode gets me into a GUI shows a complete lack of proper testing. I'm already seeing a load of fixes posted to overcome multiple issues. Sadly, without any input device function, all the fixes in the world are useless. Backtrack 4 was great...this one...pitiful example of a Linux release.

    KDE version has a problem on startx. Gnome works great. I think you should try this http://www.backtrack-linux.org/forum...x-failing.html
