    I have a multi-boot system with XP and several Linux, and PCLinux 2010 KDE recent updates broke the GUI desktop, so that now it will only boot to run level 3, (console login multi-user text mode). Here is the newly updated kernel it installed; vmlinuz-2.6.33.7-pclos6.bfs, with the same kernel number matching initial ram disk .img file. Why does it have a ".bfs" at the end, did PCLinux make some major changes ? Also I have been using a nvidia display driver which has worked fine, but I did run that command, " nvidia-xconfig " but it is still stuck in the console text mode, so how can I fix the full graphical KDE desktop loading? The title is wrong for the version, I made an error, it is PCLinux 2010 version, not 2011, sorry.
