What edition did you use to install? the One live CD or the Free DVD?

 

Try reconfiguring your card, press Alt+Ctrl+F1 and log in as root. Then load:

drakx11

and reconfigure your card. Get back to the console and:

service -f dm

Thanks medo, I started X, but only with 800x600.

My G Card is NVIDIA GeForce 6100

Monitor L226W

 

I installed FreeDVD

 

Md2009 doesn't recognize network at all. I have wireless Realtek RTL 8187

 

how can I set my network, since I cannot to Internet?

I am afraid you'll have to connect to the internet somehow, using a wired connection to set up the wireless (how ironic is this!!). So connect using a wire and set up the online repositories: http://wiki.mandriva.com/en/Docs/Basic_tas...tions_available You

 

Then will need to reconfigure your connection in the Mandriva control centre> network & internet>set up a new network interface. It'll install the necessary packages then choose "use the windows driver ndiswrapper". Next point it to the windows driver of your wireless card, you need the windows driver that's on the CD or the web site of your card manufacturer, a folder containing the .inf (and .sys file or something).

well, thanks nedo. I'll try to install Ubuntu since it recognize network card and video card.

A shame!! just kidding, it's usually advisable (especially when first starting with Linux) to use whatever distro that happens to recognize all your hardware.
