Unfortunately I didn't know if there was / is a log file for starting
X, otherwise I would have posted the two error messages I received.
So, I take a shot at remembering the references made during startup.
One had to do with not finding the map ? for the keyboard and it was
defaulting to a regular. It said it was not critical so X continued
Then there was another message about not finding mouse fd? The mouse
acted very weird in X, basically staying on top of the screen and just
moving across the top as I moved it.
p.s. If my log file is really needed and I somehow print it out or
save it to a file I'll do it.
