well at the momment i cannot even start my KDE gui.
the computer keeps at the icon and cursor for hours, i hit ctrl+alt+F1 and get a prompt and i have no network connection for some reason.
So my server is worthless, it wont start fully, because my GUI is failing.
i tried Ctrl + Alt+backspace, to kill it but then it starts all over again.
i have tried setting my server to
telinit 3, but that doesnt seem to help anything.
then i change back to telinit 5 and it tries to start my kde again.
Im using fedora 7 64bit on a Biostar K8M800
1. How do i kill the x sesssion to just run command prompt.
2. how do i change a different window manager.
-if i get to prompt can I do a yum install switchdesk?
3. how do i reinstall kde, or uninstall it so the machine boots.
first time i turned it on it came on froze right after a clean install, then i restarted thought it might have just been accident, and it took 20 mins to start, but started.
it went days without being logged out. I restarted after i installed ispconfig, then it doesnt seem to like to start kde again, i dont think it has anything to do with ispconfig.
