Hi, today I just installed darwin 8.0.1 and then I rebooted my computer (PC) and I booted from Hard Drive. But I had problems. When it was in the mode where there was a black backround and white text, first it went through all the code then the last part of code said:




So I typed my username (which is kevin)

Then it said:




Then I typed in my password

Then it said:


Welcome to Darwin!

[kevin:~] kevin%


But I got stuck there because I didn't know what to type.

So can anyone please help me and tell me what to type there.

Well what more were you expecting ? Darwin is a text only system by default, you landed in the console shell. From there you can do just about anything a unix system can. Go and install fink or darwin ports or something, and get X11 so you can have a nice graphical desktop (but nothing like Aqua). Read unix/linux stuff to work out want you want to do.
