Subject: starting X -- problems

complaint that the Hurd can't open or find libXmu.so.6, but when I do a
locate on that file, it shows up:

a similar problem when if I type XF86Setup.  It complains about not finding
libXaw.so.6 which I find also.

The problem is prolly because ldconfig doesn't work in the Hurd (er, or
something to that effect); you have to explicitly set the path to X libs.

Something like:

$export LD_LIBRARY_PATH=/X11R6/lib

(better to put it on .bashrc)

Hope this helps,

best regards,
