Re: X-windows on a Valuepoint

check that your /etc/X11/xdm/Xservers look like this:

# /etc/X11/xdm/Xservers
# This file should contain entries to start the servers on the
# local machine; if you have more than one display (not screen),
# you can add entries to the list (one per line).  If you also
# have some X terminals connected which do not support XDMCP,
# you can add them here as well.  Each X terminal line should
# look like:
#	XTerminalName:0 foreign
# When adding X servers, please keep the following things in mind:
# - For each X server other than :0, the display number must be
#   on the command line
# - This is the place to add the -bpp option to the command line
# - If you run multiple X servers, it is wise to add the vtXX
#   option to each of them, since this is the only sure way of
#   knowing in advance which X server attaches to which console.
# Example:
# :0 local /usr/X11R6/bin/X :0 vt9 -bpp 16
# :0 local /usr/X11R6/bin/X :1 vt10 -bpp 8
:0 local /usr/X11R6/bin/X

the last line is particularly important,also,check the location of X,it
may be different on your system (i'm using the latest unstable version,but
i don't think it will be much different on your system).


p.s.also notice that there are 2 Xserver(s) file Xserver (found in
/etc/X11/) and Xservers (found in /etc/X11/xdm/) it's the later that you
