    Unhappy Re: start x problem

    i have the same problem. after typing 'startx' window became black and blinking capslock and scrolllock indicator. i've waited for few minutes and nothing happens
    mine is laptop intel i3 with 2gb ram and ati hd545 radeon, i was thinking if its the graphic driver since it cannot load the gui.

    any help will do.

    thanks,
    p00ch

    it went through but it detected a conflict so i might need to adjust further.

    I would try the gnome distro also. I had good luck with my Opitmus card and Gnome 32bit BT5.
