Re: X11 installation problems
You should be running dselect from the root account.
If you are ignore the above sentence. I personally have
to run dselect several times when performing a raw
install. This is because some of the dependencies must
be satistied before other packages can be installed ( I think ).
When running dselect for the first time ( raw system ) I
do not select any packages, I just run dselect - install.
Following successful execution I start selecting packages.

configure your Xserver. I the error persists, reply back.
