k im a newbie i just installed slackware 8.1 on my p4 box. since slack doesnt auto config X like mandrake and other newbie distros im kinda lost. i installed slack and it was pretty easy no problems at all. so when i boot the boxs i login as root and im stuck at CLI and not sure how to config X i tryed "X -configure" and it output a new xfree config file "/root/XF86Config.new" then i tested the config "XFree86 -xf86config /root/XF86Config.new"
and it worked i think the black and grayish dot screen with the X as the mouse pointer came up then i have to alt + ctrl + backspace to get back to the CLI. but now when i "startx" is gives me the error below is there anything else i should do and i forgetting anything???
