HELP! Xwindows doesn't work!!!

HELP! Xwindows doesn't work!!!

Post by Marc KHOUZ » Thu, 01 Sep 1994 09:18:30



I bought the Yggdrasil summer release of Linux about FOUR WEEKS ago
and I still can't get Xwindows running properly!
I type 'xinit' then the Xwindows background pops up, I HAVE mouse control
but no client pop up EVER...
I can only deduce that it is probably not my Xconfig file that is wrong!

This is the message I get when doing 'xinit' or 'startx'
(what is that socket problem (2nd line, I know this is wrong!) ???):

Did you install everything from the CD to your hard disk?  What things are
you trying to run on the CD-ROM?  What is in your /etc/fstab file?

                         While I'll admit that anyone can make a mistake once,
                         to go on making the same lethal errors century after
                         century seems to me nothing short of deliberate.--V.
