I have a Compaq Presario with Puppy Linux 5.1.1. I was installing a vlc .pet package and some emulators when the top half of the menu disappeared. I restarted X server and it froze. Nothing worked. I turned it off. When I turned it on, it said 'previous improper shutdown' and gave me a prompt. I typed startx and it froze again. I restarted and tried xwin, it also froze. when I type xorgwizard it gives me the usual three choices but freezed no matter which one I pick. I was going to back up xorg.conf but neither mv nor rm will work, they say there is a missing library. I am not sure if they worked before or not. Can anyone help?
