Couldnt get a file descriptor referring to the console
winwood@tower05:/dev$ xinit -- :1
X: unable to open wrapper config file /etc/X11/Xwrapper.config
X: user not authorized to run the X server, aborting.
xinit:  Server error.
my Xwrapper.config
Code:
# If you have edited this file but would like it to be automatically updated
# again, run the following command as root:
#   dpkg-reconfigure x11-common
allowed_users=console
nice_value=0

I expect no one able to reply ... only linus can reply maybe

If the above doesn't work..........
Edit file /etc/X11/Xwrapper.config:
Change this line:
allowed_users=console

to

allowed_users=anybody

This will let anybody to start X.
Don't forget to change it back when done with remastering.
or I could read too :
Quote:
sudo startx -- :1
damn, what kind of solutions we can read sometimes ... how stupid it is

Thank you anyhow

same problem. used the hack to fix it. the machine's behind a firewall, so I'm hoping it doesn't catch one fire.
