Dual boot XP on C and P 2007 on D

Have installed P 2007 and after some troubles, i did a partial upgrade (KDE).
After startup the PC i had to choose out of three possibilities; i choose for the new one.
During init it was asked for username and password. I did and the following appeared: username@pardus ~ $
And than stops my knowledge (early apprentice, you see).

How do i get back in the graphical picture of P 2007?

Hope you can help me out.

Thanks,
Peter

Hello.
I  have installing pardus 2008, and update it.
All is OK but maybe after changing the video card driver, I have trouble.
I have old ati card rage128 and j select ati driver fglrx than the basic r128 generic driver.

But now after reboot,after select in grub pardus2008, pardus stop running and lines executions and commands appears.......
The xorg is broken ?
Ask me my login and my pass, I execute, and I have a line same terminal screen.

I want to reach my disk drive because I have documents to keep.
What can I do ?

You shoukd first try to boot with another videomode, at the first boot screen you can change some options (see at the bottom of the screen), I guess pressing F4 enables you to choose failsafe mode.


Perhaps you can then enter the graphical mode (X windows session) and change back to the original graphic card settings.

Use Display Manager once inside KDE  to see which driver is advised for your videocard.


If nothing succeeds you have to manually edit the file /etc/X11/xorg.conf in the terminal. (What I post below is from what I roughly remember, perhaps there are some small errors hereafter)

You could then cd to /etc/X11/

Code:
cd /etc/X11/

and open the texteditor vim (I guess)
Code:
sudo vim xorg.conf

set videodriver back to e.g. vesa, save and try to boot up again.[/i]

This is what I meant by the easiest option:

Just in case X won't start again:

While in GRUB, press f4 and select 'failsafe'. This way, Pardus will select the VESA driver. This way you can reconfigure your card properly, or at least get in KDE Smiley You also don't need to reïnstall Pardus.

F4 graphical mode (bottom screen)



Hello.
No F4..F5 choices.(maybe because I don't use live cd ?)
So I decide to try F3, and choose "probe..." option.
I can reach the system and change the video card driver to R128.
Thanks you very much for your help.
