Re: Problems starting X
Can't find X Server means that XWindows didn't start up probably.
There's a lot of causes, wrong install, etc....
I also had problems starting X in the beginning when I installed sarge,
this was on both, a G3 Powerbook Pismo and Wallstreet. The cause of the
problem was that the configfile that sarge installes
(/etc/X11/XF86config-4) was completley worthless. I dond't know your
detailed Hardwarespecs (there's a lot of Powerbook G4's) but I'm quite
positive that mine XF86Config-4 will not work, so I don't attach it. I
would advise you to search on Google for Powerbook G4 XF86Config-4,
because there's a lot of them around and try to get one that really
fits to your Powerbook. You'll be best of searching the Google Linux
Hope this helps,

gdm. I am new to the specifics of the configuration of X and I don't
where to start.
During installation the PB complained about not being able to find an X
server, but I don't know what the means.
When gdm starts it tells me there is an error and asks if I would like
see the output, it also says 'Caught signal 11'... any help?
Thanks as always, anything is appreciated!!
