I tried the solution in this post;http://www.vectorlinux.com/forum2/index.php?topic=5956.0
Only to end up needing to enter the username, password, and then ending up in runlevel 3 instead of 5. I also lost the pretty login screen (kdm?) that was there prior to me messing with the kdmrc file. Anyone know what I may have done to mess this up and what I can do to fix it?
I'm pretty sure this is a PEBKAC, I'm a bit of a newb with linux.
EDIT: I'm pretty sure it doesn't matter, but just in case; I've also been having weirdness when logging in sometimes, the desktop is solid blue until I go to <rclick >> Home>, at which point it restores itself. It doesn't always do this, and I haven't found the pattern to it yet. Also, it's an old K6 frankenbox that was laying around, so I'm not even completely sure what kind of hardware there is, no modem, no sound, there is a network card. I loaded VL Lite 5.9 Beta 5 on it (after trying a couple of other distros that I didn't like). All I really want this box to do is boot up and be ready to get onto the internet, with a few apps available just in case they're needed. If you've read all of my wonderful rambling, thanks, any reply would be helpful, even a "WTH did you do?" from someone with more experience than me would be comforting.
