Angry VNC screwed up my xfce X window


Hello all,

I recently installed a VNC server on my Gentoo Linux system.
The problem I am having is this:
Now when I got to launch X Windows via 'startx or startxfce' commands it does this.. "/usr/bin/startxfce: Starting X server


waiting for X server to begin accepting connectiosn."


How do I change it back so that when I want to get to X windows like xfce it runs that instead of this VNC server stuff????
Right now I can not get into X windows unless I manually run ./XFree86 or something then its just the "X". I cant get xfce to run manually because then it tells me this.
" Gtk-WARNING **: cannot open display:"

I just want to get back into X windows!
Anyone have any idea or know how to fix?

thanks,
Sam

First of all, this has nothing to do with LFS.

Second of all, by you spamming our site with multiple posts of the same question is no way to speed up your replies for you questions.
