hmmm, alright, i did this again. startx produces the following output (as
var: allowed_users, value: rootonly.
var: nice_value, value: -10.
X: cannot stat /etc/X11/X (No such file or directory), aborting.
xinit: Connection refused (errno111): unable to connect to X server.
xinit: No such process (errno3): Server error.
now, i know that X is in /usr/bin/X11 so if i copy it to /etc/X11/ my output
is basically the first two lines of the above output, repeated infinitly.
as i said, XF86Setup manages to start X in svga and everything seems okay,
but if i start it manually (either as normal user or root) it doesn't work.
thanks for your time!
