I think u will have to boot to the console mode, log in as root, and edit the /et/inittab file and change the default run-level to 5 there.

reboot and u should be good to go.

P.S. : i hope u have configured ur videocard properly

It's related as fas as you get error msgs

But in your case i dont think so, it's something else , that you dont get any messages , the init is currently 5 and you still come up to console

That's due to an updated xfree i guess ? smile
