Re: found net prob, temp fixed. installed xfce4, how to autostart it?

I just log in as root, it's much simpler.  If you don't know the root
password just do
sudo passwd
and set one.  Yes, I know you should never log in as root.  I've been
doing it for 20 years anyway.

I don't think a window manager or whatever these things call
themselves these days cares about video drivers, that's between X and
the hardware.  Do you have an xorg.conf file?  Modern systems usually
don't need one, but you can specify a video driver in there.

No, I won't  call it "climate change", do you have a "reality problem"? - AB1JX
