NetBSD install problem
I have just downloaded NetBSD with a 28kbps I net connection which was dam boring.
And when i went to install it i got it all the way installed perfect but then it came to the first reboot i got to it and had to make a root pass. and i did that but then i figured there would some waht of a vizualization when i loged in but it was still on cammand line or something and it also said something about a bad visualization something. anyone ever had this problem or no if i can command to get it to work and no the right cammands. i tried to find help in the # man man command but that is like as far as igot after the full install which was a drag...lol. but ya any suggestions greatly appreciated. TY

At the command line type:
If you do get an error message, write it down, or copy and paste, and post it here.
This will not help us help you.
said something about a bad visualization something.

I can't really make out what you're asking...
Could you tell us the exact error message it gives you?
and it also said something about a bad visualization something
As devpon said type "startx" to start X (makes sense doesn't it? )
If the display is garbled or something is acting up, you'll have to run "xf86config" from command line to set up your monitor, graphics card, etc.
