how to start gui from bootcd ?

Post by volle » Mon Mar 24, 2008 8:52 pm


Im trying to start the gui from the rescue cd, with Xorg or Xvesa. All i get is a gray screen with an x on, nothing else happens ?

what am i doing wrong ?

I want to backup my / and my /home to another partion.

Im new to linux and would like to do it the gui way :-)

Can anyone please help ?

if you speak about systemrescuecd you must type 'wizard' or better read manual

and typing "partimage gui" is needless - just "partimage"
