Help again with XFree86

Post by David Ro » Sat, 20 Mar 1999 04:00:00

After a swift change to Caldera open linux I am again in the familiar
position of having to install the update.
On running the install command I get something about failed dependencies
along with

pam >=0.59 is needed by XFree86
xbanner is .....................

What did I do wrong?
Wrong directory? (it was run from /root)
Do I have to download these files?




1. XFree86 - HELP! (again)

After I type "xinit" I see the message "Couldn't open RGB_DB
'/usr/X386/lib/X11/rgb'". What's the problem? I have three files named, one if which is rgb.dir.

Things continue after I get this message. I get a window on the screen with a
shell prompt and an empty block cursor. No response to the mouse or keyboard,
except for <ctrl><alt><F1>.
