MkLinux DR3 can't start X

MkLinux DR3 can't start X

Post by mar.. » Wed, 07 Oct 1998 04:00:00

I just installed DR3 (I had been running 2.1) without a hitch, but
now, when I issue the command "startx", I get a message that it can't
locate xinit.  It says it's looking for appropriate X-servers, then
after a few seconds says there are none.  I added the absolute path to
the directory that contains the startx executable and xinit to the
PATH line in .bash_profile.  

I'd appreciate any advice.



1. MKLinux DR3 won't boot on 7200

I have a problem with the initial boot/install of DR3 on my 7200/90.
Looking at some arlier postings the symptoms are sort of similar:

Drag the Mac files into place, reboot, choose MKLinux at the splash
screen, get two boot meassages, then "mem_size = 168M" then .... nothing.

I have a fairly standard setup: scsi cd-rom on id 3, internal scsi disk on
0, external on 1 (where I'm trying to install if I get that far).
lilo.conf points to /dev/scd0 but I can see no CD activity during the boot

Based on other postings I'm suspicious of:
1. Memory size too big ?? (168Mb) - Anyone successfully installed on >128?
2. My PCI Video card - a Formac Provision 4/60 - How does MKLinux handle this?

Short of ripping out my installed memory or video, does anyone have any ideas?


2. how to check if /etc/hosts.deny really works ?
