Thread: Another X Problem

  1. #1

    Another X Problem

    While I was installing Mandrake RC 1, it froze on X Config and I wanted to config it through CLI and I ran xf86config and everything worked out pretty good until I cannot startx

    it says:

    execve cannot find /etc/X11/X : (errno2)

    I have no idea what that means what does that mean?

    hello,
    on my system this is a sym link to /usr/X11R6/bin/XFree86 , if it is not on yours i would make one, i.e. ln -s /usr/X11R6/bin/XFree86 /etc/X11/X

    Re:Another X Problem

    Open up your /etc/inittab
    find two lines that says this:
    Code:
    id:3:initdefault:
    change to this
    Code:
    id:4:initdefault:
    Hope this helps, yours may be 5 by default, I dunno how mandy runlevels work, these are slack.
