  1. Yay, Win3.11 old days Thanks for your help.
  2. Just rolled back to before I updated. I tried your way of using the text console, but my commands knowledge is of linux is not great. So I found just when you first boot the computer up Cent OS gives you about Three seconds to enter a menu where you can roll back. Thanks again for your help. By the way are there any good books you would recommed on Cent OS and Linux's commands. Thanks.
  3. Thanks I thought that was it. "since you installed server instead of desktop" Thanks for your help
  4. I installed Cent OS 5.7-i386 server and from the text console I start the GUI (Gnome if i understand correctly ) by typing "startx". If this is the correct way of starting the GUI, If so I have two dumb Qs. 1 Is there a way to get it 2 start straight into the GUI ? 2 Where the hell is the shut down or restart in the GUI? All can find is a suspend button. Thanks 2 all
  5. Thanks will have a look at the log, I have try the CTRL+ALT+F1...F9 but screen just stays blank. But I will have a look before I try starting the GUI. Thanks for your help, will let you know how I get on.

  7. Hi there, In case you can’t tell I’m new to Linux. I am trying to setup my own web server with Kloxo (A cpanel alternative). I installed Cent OS 5.7-i386 server, and ran the GUI (startx) and all went well. But when I ran the updates and restarted the PC and go to Start the GUI I just get a blank screen. I have done some reading on all the forums out there, but far I have had no luck. Can still use the Command Prompt (if you call it that in the Linux’s World?) But would like to use the GUI. (Bit like using DOS instead of windows And I’m over those days lol). The hardware I am using to test this on is Dell Optiplex 745 2.0GHz core 2 duo 1 GB Ram 40 GB hard drive DVD Rom Intel Graphics Media Accelerator 3000 Thanks to all.
