xserver is not running on Linux box


Hi All,

I am trying to connect to GUI interface of Linux box using xclient. but Xserver is not running on Linux box.
here is the error when trying start x server
#startx
xauth: creating new authority file /root/.serverauth.20098

xinit: No such file or directory (errno 2): no server "/usr/bin/X" in PATH

Use the -- option, or make sure that /usr/bin is in your path and
that "/usr/bin/X" is a program or a link to the right type of server
for your display. Possible server names include:

Xorg Common X server for most displays
Xvfb Virtual frame buffer
Xfake kdrive-based virtual frame buffer
Xnest X server nested in a window on another X server
Xephyr kdrive-based nested X server

giving up.
xinit: Connection refused (errno 111): unable to connect to X server
xinit: No such process (errno 3): Server error.

It looks like xorg is either not installed or not correctly configured.
Could you give us some more details please like which distro you're using? (and which version as some distros have headless versions)
