unable to connect to X server

unable to connect to X server

Post by vin » Mon, 12 Nov 2001 05:12:04



Hi
Perhaps someone can help me.  i have installed linux on a Sager Laptop
234MHz with 64 Ram.
After everything installed i rebooted and it ent to the console.  I
typed in start x with no such luck.  it says:
execve failed for /etc/X11/X
giving up.
xinit: No such file or directory(errno 2): unable to connect to X
server
xinit: No such process (errno 3) server error.

i thought it was my video driver so I downloaded a new one, although
everywhere I checked my video driver was supported.(s3 Virge MX)
I tried X86config and still can not get into X server.
I think I did something wrong with the installation.  
I am a newbie, could some please help.
Thanks

 
 
 

1. Unable to connect to X server (errno = 111)

Has anyone ever seen the following when trying to start X after a fresh
install?

TRANS(SocketUNIXConnect) () can't connect: errno = 111                
giving up.                                                            
xinit:  Connection refused (errno 111):  unable to connect to X server
xinit:  No such process (errno 3):  Server error.                    

When I use startx, the screen goes black, then when I switch from one
terminal to another and back, I can see that message, there is also messages
like:
(--) SVGA: Mode "1024x768" needs hsync freq of 56.48 kHz. Deleted.
(--) SVGA: Mode "1280x1024" needs hsync freq of 51.02 kHz. Deleted.

These are all high resolution, no 640x480 type stuff.  I'm at sort of a loss
on this because I've installed X on several machines before and never run
into anything worse than some minor problems with the XF86Config.

System Description:
AMD 5x86 133 processor
Genoa Phantom 64 1 meg ram
Gateway 2000 vivitron 15" monitor
20 meg ram
Ms Mouse
3Com 509 Ethernet card
Slackware 3.1  Linux 2.0.0  (Retrieved about August 12, almost directly
                             after the release)

Thanks!
