I am really new to this though I have tried several times over the years since 92.
I installed debian on this HP compaq about 3 weeks ago.
Some how I have screwed up the login screen.
It loads up and starts X and it was giving me a login screen.
Now all I get is a black screen, it still plays the sound so I know I can login but with out the screen I am blind.
Some one sugested I do a get uninstall i think of gdm which I did followed with a get install gdm.
I am using it now so I can log in blind and it loads it all but being black makes it hard to do any thing.
