Re: cannot start X

Hi, when I run startx, I get the following error:

My .xinitrc is real simple:

exec rxvt &
exec rxvt &
exec enlightenment

I'm running a fresh woody, with xserver-common version 4.0.2-1. Can anyone suggest a fix?

Thanks in advance.

Not much help here, but in the previous version of X, this was usually caused by an inappropriate second line in /etc/X11/Xserver, but I'm not sure how this fits into the version 4 scheme.
