Ok...So I havent used slackware in a while, only for servers.
I installed v 10.1 with the full install.
Here are my questions:
1) How would I go about having linux auto startx ?
2) How can I change my res to 1440 x 900 ?
3) How can I get my wireless network card to work ?
4) Can I get my wireless card and lan card to auto switch depending on whether lan cable is connected ? Like is there a program because in windows I have this program that auto switches for me like when I dont have an ethernet cord plugged in it switches to wireless and when I do have it plugged in, it switches to lan card.
What desktop are you using? You will have to modify your /etc/rc.conf file:
That is a sample from my file - tailor your own file as you see fit.
# What display manager do you use ? [ xdm | gdm | kdm | entrance ]
Then if you issue the command (as root):
then reboot, KDM should come up as your graphical display manager.
# rc-update add xdm default
Of course this all depends on Slackware being similar to my system (which is not slack) - others can advise if the above method is not suitable for your distribution.
Regarding your resolution, you can either manually change it in your /etc/X11/xorg.conf file, or you can do it more or less automatically (how much automation depends on which method you choose) with a utility. Have a look at this to get some ideas.
