Toshiba Tecra 700CT ?

Post by Grant R. Guenth » Tue, 06 Feb 1996 04:00:00

We're looking at buying a new Toshiba laptop to run Linux.  I'm
aware of Ken Harker's Linux Laptop page, and the T400CDT page.  One
of the models under consideration is the Tecra 700CT - does anyone know
anything about this machine and how compatible it is ?   Our main
concern would be any problems running XF86.

1. XFree86 problem on TOSHIBA Tecra 700CT


        I installed Linux Slakeware 3.1.13 on a Toshiba Tecra 700CT.  The PCI
was not recognized, but everything else seemed to be OK.  
Then I tried to install XFree86 3.1.2.  The XF86Config was created
for generic VGA card (as a first try).  After typing "startx",
I got error messages (and X didn't work):

 > TRANS(SocketUNIXConnect) () can't connect: errno=2  (6 times)

 > xinit: No such file or directory (errno2): no server "X" in PATH                      
 > xinit: No such file or directory (errno2): unable to connect to
          X server
 > xinit: No such process (errno3): Server error

I have the correct PATH and have X and xinit files (.xinitrc was
also created).

I would appreciate any comments regarding this error message.
