Re: boot to terminal after Virtualbox install :-(

Wouldn't that just try to start startx?

I didn't upgrade Virtualbox, just a fresh Virtualbox install on my Centos :-(

Thanks

boot to terminal after Virtualbox install :-(

I just installed Virtualbox 5.0 and got my Centos7 install some what broken.

When I boot I end up at the terminal and startx doesn't work.

I also install dkms and hoped it would do what needed to be done but I am sure i am missing some steps :-(

Mayday, help ;-))
