XFree86 not running


after having apt-get installed gnome after a netinstall, I wanted to
start x (startx). However, X does not start but shows me the following

"/usr/X11R6/lib/X11/xinit/xserverrc: line 2: /usr/bin/X11/X file not

xinit: unable to connect to xserver"

Any ideas? I assume that the gnome metapackage is linked to XFree,
because it was downloaded during the installation of gnome.

Sorry if this is a dumb question, but I am coming from gentoo, here the
packages are linked against each other (well, Xorg) and all the
necessary init-scripts are installed. Do I need to do that manually?

Thank you a lot in advance for your patience :-)
