Starting X Windows

Hi,

I am new to Linux and have just installed Debian 1.3.1 Rev.6. I have
gotten X Windows configured but when I run the 'startx' command I get
the following message:

exec of /usr/x11R6/bin/XF86_NONE failed

_X11TransSocketUnixConnect: can't connect errn0=2
"                                               "
"                                               "
"                                               "
"                                               "
giving up
 xinit: No such file or directory (errno2) Unable to connect to
 x server

 xint: no such process (errno3): server error

I have no clue so any help would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks,
Chris March

You need to run 'xf86config" to make a VALID link for the file named X
in the /usr/X11/bin directory..it right now pointing to XF86_NONE
means that you haven't gotten the correct SERVER for your video card
yet..Regards

In debian, you need to (as root) cd /etc/X11 then
edit the Xserver file to point to the server you want.  

I use the SVGA server so mine looks like this:

/usr/X11R6/bin/XF86_SVGA
Console

The first line in this file is the full pathname of the default X server.
The second line shows who is allowed to run the X server:
RootOnly
Console      (anyone whose controlling tty is on the console)
Anybody

You need to configure the X server for your video card and monitor
first.  Try "XF86Setup" or "Xconfigurator."

1. Starting X Windows on start up

I've just installed Red Hat 6.0 on an old Pentium 60 machine
that we had around.

After the initial install it was running X Windows at start up, with
a graphic login prompt (I think it's called xdm).

I mistakenly made some changes to the run level, and it's now
starting at the blank command prompt again.

I tried resetting the run level to 5, and editing the /etc/inittab to
reflect id:5:initdefault:

That didn't do it.

What else can I do to get xdm to run at boot time?

Thanks in advance
