PD: VERY BIZARRE Xperience...
I just ran dselect and tried to install xserver-vga1. I downloaded the current version of Linux (Debian 1.3) about a week ago. During the first installation of xserver-vga1 the system asked me for configuration information. I replied yes. This is the error printout:
Not all of the configuration and application default files are installed. The file /usr/X11R6/lib/xinit/xinitrc is missing
The XFConfig file was not created.
To create it latter, run /usr/sbin/xbase-cconfigure as root.
Consequently, I unselected xserver-vga1 and its' accompanying files and removed them from my system using dselect. Next, I tried to install them again. This time there was no xserver configuration problem. It was nice to see the GUI for the couple of minutes during configuration. I clicked done and tried to logon in another tty session (tty3) while dselect was finishing up. The system hung. After about four or five minutes of inactivity I gave it the vulcan pinch. The warm boot worked fine. System issued TERM and KILL commands.
Now when I try to boot my machine, everything goes well until it gets to the login prompt. It does not get any further. HELP! Do I have to reinstall the whole system again? Should I try installing xserver-vga1 (current version) once more? I see someone else also had a similar problem with X windows. Any advice?
Thanks in advance
