Re: cannot open dislpay: debian:0.0
1. When you turn on your computer and boot into Linux, does it present
you with a log in prompt?
3. If the answer to Question 1 above is "Yes", is it a graphical login
(kdm, xdm, etc), or is it a text-based login (white text on black
screen, 80 columns by 24 lines, or similar)?
4. If the answer to Question 1 above is "Yes", as whom do you log in?
root? or a normal user?
Okay, next question.
Are you then trying to run "make xconfig"? Or are you starting an X
session with something like "startx"?
