    hey how the hell do you get it to load the GUI?
    (i seem to be stuck in the bash shell or whatever it is)

    I am just a worthless liar. I am just an imbecile.
    I will only complicate you. Trust in me and fall as well.
    I will find a center in you. I will chew it up and leave.
    I will work to elevate you just enough to bring you down.

    Tip: if you've just started using linux, try easier distros before going for slackware or gentoo, 'k.

    Also, what have you tried, is x running and all that?

    nevermind i got it....
    anyone else looking for the same info, heres what i did:

    -log in as root at the command prompt
    -type xorgconfig (xf86config possibly if you have an older slackware)
    -follow the prompts
    -after thats done, to start the GUI, type startx

    link to the info that got me goin

    some further editing needs to be done to get it to start in GUI by default...
