Description Bill Pemberton 1999-02-15 14:08:15 EST
If I pick packages I end up not being able to run X.  When I
run startx I get the background that's obviously the X
server starting (with the X cursor) but that's as far as it

I assume this is due to some reguired pacakge that's not
getting picked up since if I just take the defaults on the
install I do get a working X setup (with Gnome running).

I've got the install.log, if that'll help....

Email the install log in to us so that we can recreate the install in
the test lab.

Comment 2 Cristian Gafton 1999-03-18 19:27:59 EST
either window manager problem or some other install problem.
Unfortunately I am unable to decode the install log because it was
mailed attached instead of just including the log in a text message.
