Simple quick question, what does your .xinitrc file look like? Does itQuote:

start all of the processes as background? If it does, then that's your
problem. The startup looks normal, there are no serious errors in it.
My guess would be that the last command in your .xinitrc file is either
crashing or being run as a background process. When this file is
closed/finished processing, the X server exits. If you do a man xinit,
it will give you some more information about this. (Including where to
find it, I don't remember the path off the top of my head) If you don't
see the problem or don't know what I'm talking about, send me a copy of
it, to check out and I'll let you know.
