Greetings.  I just installed Red Hat Linux 5. 1 and I'm trying to get the x
windows to work.  I've got an S3 video card and my monitor was set to

When I run startx I get the error message:

fatal server error:
caught signal 11. server aborting

. . .

_X11TransSocketUNIXConnect: 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

Thanks for your help

1. Not a newbie, but with a newbie problem (startx fails error 2)

Gee, I'm embarrassed. I built my whole damn pre-R5 system, had it up and
going with GNOME and everything, and foolishly decided I could rebuild the
install to make a cleaner system.
   Now, I am encountering an early problem I didn't have before. I have
directed my "X" link towards the XFree68_FBDev (which worked before), but
now it fails with error2. I checked the permissions, and have executed it
by itself (X loads fine), but can't firgure out what;s wrong.
