Acer Aspire 5520 Help!

I am “attempting” to install openSUSE 11 on my Acer 5520. After installation i can’t get it to go out of the shell? I’m new to linux but i start to run Startx and it said it wasn’t installed. Any ideas would be greatly appreciated. :slight_smile:

you could try

clear the boot line and type 3 in the boot line to get runlevel 3 - login as root

sax2 -r -m 0=vesa

this should enable a display using vesa

i tried that and it said “command not found”

you need to be runlevel3 and root
