 Of course nothing happens.  You are running the X server only.  There's
 no window manager nor any other program that gets those clicks.  The
 server just sits there, gets clicks, generates events and send them to
 the clients, but there are no clients.

 Sorry, I must have missed your problem.  From what you said about a big
 cursor, I thought your resolution was something like 640x480 or
 320x200, which would have meant the server discarded all the other
 resolutions because the horizontal or vertical ranges you specified
 don't allow for them.

 It looks like your X server is working properly.  If you start your
 session with:

 $ startx

 what happens?
