i  have just installed all the mimimal x packages and have installed them successfully.

i manage to get through XF86Config and once the data entry is completed the server shuts down then boots up to display a congratourality message.

i then type startx and it comes up with:
"error number 110:
xtUNIXTransSocketConnect error
no valid modes found"

or something to that effect.
and i am like: "what? - it booted up fine after the installiation (to show me the congrats' message)- why cant it do it now?".

please help me!!!!
this also happened 2 years ago on debian 2.0 - i thought that by reinstalling an updated system i would crush that little technical problem. it didnt.

When trying to start X, use the command "startx 2> Xerror.log", which will send all the error messages to a text file in your home directory named "Xerror.log". Then post the contents of that file to this list.
