Please help, I;m totally new to VectorL. I go thorugh all the intallation until it tells me caching fonts failed, then I get a log in promt which leaves me with a text console. Is this how it is supposed to be. Isn't it supposed to be a grapchical interface?
Thanks

Try logging in from the text console (typing your username and then password when prompted) and then type "startx" (without the quotes).

1. Please specify which version of VL you installed? VL 6 Standard/Gold?

2. When did you see the caching fonts failed message? During installation, only once? Or, everytime you boot your system?

3. Please check vasm to determine which boot mode is selected and report back. You can find it by: Vasm, [super], Xwindow, Bootset

4. Do you know what graphics card your system uses? You can determine this by issuing 'lspci | grep VGA' (you need to be root to do this).

5. Please let us know which driver is being used for your graphics card? You can determine this by issuing 'cat /etc/X11/xorg.conf | grep Driver' (it will likely be the last one listed)  (you need to be root to do this).

Sorry for all the questions but hopefully this will allows us to help you more directly.

Same problem, getting Caching Fonts [FAILED]

startx just starts the GUI, the error message comes before that.

4. Do you know what graphics card your system uses? You can determine this by issuing 'lspci | grep VGA' (you need to be root to do this).

5. Please let us know which driver is being used for your graphics card? You can determine this by issuing 'cat /etc/X11/xorg.conf | grep Driver' (it will likely be the last one listed)  (you need to be root to do this).

Just for the sake of accuracy, you can run both of those commands as user. You need to give the full path for lspci if you're not running it as root, like this:
/sbin/lspci | grep VGA

No changes are needed for cat /etc/X11/xorg.conf | grep Driver .
