Re: First time KDE on an iBook 2.3

You need to first configure X Windows.


Enjoy! :)

Subject: First time KDE on an iBook 2.3

I picked up one of the phased-out G3 iBooks and
installed woody successfully by using the
"Booting from the hard disk" method.  (The CD
wouldn't boot)  I've added all the text-based and
command line tools that I like and would now like
to try getting KDE running.

I've used tasksel to try to install  an "X window
system"  and I've tried apt-get to install KDE
and related packages (wiping the partition in
between).  Unfortunately I get this kind of error:


Fatal server error:
no screens found


XIO:  fatal IO error 104 (Connection reset by peer) on X server ":0.0"
      after 0 requests (0 known processed) with 0 events remaining.

What am I missing?  Or what should I read to find out how to install KDE?
Theoretically, I should just type apt-get mozilla
and then let the dependencies work themselves out.
