X fails to start
Last modified: 2008-05-01 11:37:56 EDT
When I try to start X with "startx", I get the following error log:
----- Begin Log -----
Fatal server error:
Cannot open log file "/var/log/XFree86.0.log"
When reporting a problem related to a server crash, please send
the full server output, not just the last messages.
This can be found in the log file "/var/log/XFree86.0.log".
xinit: Connection refused (errno 111): unable to connect to X server
xinit: No such process (errno 3): Server error.
----- End Log -----
There's at least one obvious problem to me. It's trying to write an error
log into /var/log and I, as an ordinary user, am not allowed to do that. I
am not sure if that's the only problem, though.
This should be fixed with the new Xwrapper support in XFree86-4.0.1-0.30.
