RE: Stuck in DOS land after install. Where is the GUI?
Hello.

Tom is right.

If you need a graphical login manager, use SLiM. Other option is to login to your user account and type startx. By default, DeLi(cate) doesn't start GUI. The latest installation CD comes with preconfigured default window manager and that's IceWM (part of the default package sets ... not included in the minimal installation). Older CDs require you to select the window manager in the delisetup started from the user account. Additionally, older computers where the HW autodetection doesn't work well, might stuck with completely black screen after starting the X session. In that case you need to run the X configuration from the delisetup executed with the root permissions. It's usually safer to test the config prior enabling the SLiM manager. Otherwise it can be difficult for non-experienced users to disable it again.
