Re: Problems Installing X
I had installed Storm Linux which is based on potato and tried to upgrade
by using the unstable distribution. I got the following error after
upgrading to XFree86 version 4.02... "cannot stat etc/X11/X" I then made
boot floppies and installed a completely clean install by using boot
floppies, reinitializing the partition and using dselect to install from
the unstable distribution but received the same error. I read over the
HowTo's but couldn't find anything that would help. I ran xf86config but
nothing seems to fix it. What is the next step?
I had a problem when I installed the XFree86-4.0.2 binaries over the
default 3.3.6 release that comes with Patato. The problem that I was
encountering was that the X Font Server would literally freeze the
system at boot time or when switching run levels. TO fix this I had to
mv the xfs init script to the root users directory so that the X Font
Server would no longer initialize.
