X: cannot read /etc/X11/X symbolic link
I upgraded one of my potato boxes to woody over the last two nights.
I have encountered problems setting up X after the upgrade.
After creating an XF86config, startx yields this error message:
X: cannot read /etc/X11/X symbolic link (Invalid argument) aborting
I looked through the mailing list archives and found one post which
referred to this. The solution advocated was to link /etc/X11/X to
I did this, using ln -s /etc/X11/X /usr/bin/X11/XFree86 as root.
I get a message stating that the file exists.
startx again yields the same error message as the first time.
I would appreciate some pointers in getting out of this mess.
