black screen after "startx" Slackware13


Hello, I left slackware 13 with airodumb and airplay executed in console for 6 hours. When I got back, konsole had something similar to "packet has length error". I could open the packet using aircrack -m option, but when i shut down the OS, it didnt shut down properly. Now when I do startx black window stays forever. I tried pkgtool and change to KDE but the same happens. I have no idea what to do! Any advice please??

Thanks

Salu2

What do you mean by "black window"? Do you mean black screen? Or do you have a black window in the screen?
If you have a full black screen, then please post your /var/log/Xorg.0.log

I do not have any experience with slackware, but if i had encountered the same problem in a redhat or debian system i would try to reconfigure X, i guess there is tools like dpkg-reconfigure xserver-xorg or redhat-system-display-tui in slackware..
