Unable to connect to X server (errno = 111)

Unable to connect to X server (errno = 111)

Post by Phil Shaff » Fri, 20 Sep 1996 04:00:00



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!
