I just installed Linux off the Slackware Pro 2.0 distribution, and
I configured the video card and my mouse and I ran startx, and X windows
came up just fine, but then I exited, and now it says:
Waiting for X server to shut down
xinit: Unknown error (errno 0): Client Error
And it doesn't come up. . . .
I called tech support at Morse Communications, and the technician
said that there should be a file in /tmp called xinitlock or something
to that affect, but we were unable to locate it. Has anyone else
had this problem, and/or know of a solution.
I tried rebooting, and even re-installing the XFree86 portions, and now
I am completely unable to start X with either xinit or startx.
Please email any response to me as well as posting here,
as my email is much easily accessed. . .
Thanks in advance,
