    I am running Mandrake 10.0 , I changed some setting while I was in the GUI mode !

    Now it will only reboot in the text mode !

    What do I type in the text mode to bring up the gui mode ?

    Thanks :cool:

    also you need to edit the default runlevel to 4 or 5 to boot to a GUI login.

    Or goto Configure your system and change the boot options in there, to boot to a GUI, or auto boot w/theme etc...

    If you ever want to back to text only, open a console, su , then input your root password, then type init 3 . similar applies for getting back into X, if logged in as root, init 5
