Re: Running Debian on P166 MMX, 2 gig HDD laptop

> Anyway, every time I boot up from GRUB, it goes straight to the login prompt, and once you login, you're left at the command line. I am used to the autoboot sequence where it goes directly to the GUI login screen and you just load KDE or Gnome or whatever environment you want. In this case, I am trying to load KDE and have had no success.

apt-get install (gdm or kdm or xdm)

installing an x-display-manager should do the trick of automatically
taking you into gui mode after bootup.

OK, I tried that and it boots up saying, "Starting K Display Manager: kdm." at the end of the boot sequence. Then it goes to the login, no K display manager. I log in and then su, then run kdm again, and it just sits. What am I missing?
