X does not work


I tried to install X on the HURD. I downloaded


and the translators


I installed X3323-Hurd.tar.gz with

cd /
tar -xzf /path-to-X3323-Hurd.tar.gz 

All files are correctly installed in /X11R6

After that I copied the kbd,mouse and pfinet translators to /hurd

I set up the translators with:

settrans -cg /dev/kbd
chown root /dev/kbd
chmod 444 /dev/kbd
settrans /dev/kbd /hurd/kbd /dev/kbd

settrans -cg /dev/mouse
chown root /dev/mouse
chmod 444 /dev/mouse
settrans /dev/mouse /hurd/mouse --protocol=ps/2

I use a ps/2-mouse. By the way, I installed the latest tar.gz-Version
of HURD from Marcus' site. And I installed the .deb-Package hurd.

I also set 

export LD_LIBRARY_PATH=/usr/X11R6/lib
export DISPLAY=localhost:0.0

I copied all files from debian-linux, which is running with X on the
same box to /etc/X11.

When I try to start X I get the following error-messages:
_XSERVTransSocketOpen: socket() failed for tcp
_XSERVTransSocketOpenCOTSServer: Unable to open socket for tcp
_XSERVTransOpen: transport open failed for tcp/hurd:0
_XSERVTransMakeAkkCOTSServerListeners: failed to open listener for tcp

Fatal server error:
Cannot establish any listening sockets - Make sure an X server isn't
already running

Hmm, what goes wrong when I try to start X? What else do I have to
config? Any hints?

Thanks in advance for hints!
