i have just installed debian and configured xf86 to run on my toshiba
satallite pro 4300 laptop. this all works great so far except that when i
startx i get three icons on a very pretty debian background: one starts a
terminal session, one configures xwindows options and the other one doesnt
appear to do anything!
i have installed gnome but when i try to start it by typing gnome-session it
returns an error that it 'cant open display'
i have looked into this alot on the web, etc and it appears that i might be
missing some kind of environment variable or something. i am pretty good
with unix but this is my first time with linux and xwindows/gnome.
if anybody could help shed some lighton these topics (good web pages,
newsgroups, etc) or even just come up with an answer to get gnome to run, it
would be most appreciated.
