New User/No GUI
This is my first post, please tell me if I am in the wrong place and
possibly suggest where I need to be.
I am fairly new to Linux. I have installed Suse and Ubuntu. I am really
interested in Debian and have read everything in the install
instructions. I have tried the auto install and the expert26 install. In
the case of the autoinstall I received no choice for gnome or kde.
Unfortunately I did not get that choice in the expert26 either. I did
install all 15K+packages. After I got to the command prompt I switched
to su mode and did an apt-get install gnome. It went through the install
process and brought me ultimatley back to a command prompt. Then I tried
init 5 and that is where it ends. I get switching to runlevel 5, and
sending process the term signal and it hangs right there.
Can anyone point me towards an answer to my plight?
