Can't launch KDE in Mandrake shell...

Jan 5, 2004
I just installed Mandrake 10 RC1 and I log in as root, but I can't launch KDE by typing KDE. It says "Server Failure". I have tried xstart and it says that command is not valid...

As Geffy said. ^^ :)
Also, it's not a very good idea to login as root and use X due to potential security issues. I would suggest using a regular account if you have one, or creating a new one using the "adduser" command.

Ep, glad to see you come back and tidy up...did want to ask a one day favor, I want to enhance my resume , was hoping you could make me administrator for a day, if so, take me right off since I won't be here to do anything, and don't know the slightest about the board, but it would be nice putting "served administrator osnn", if can do, THANKS

Been running around Quora lately, luv it there
