startx


Hi!

I have just installed RedHat 7.1
Everything works fine, but when I try to startx with a ordinary users I'm getting this message:

Cannot start X server
Perhaps you don't have the authority?

I get this error message when I'm connecting remote to another server with ppp.


Thanks!

Does redhat come with xfree86-4?
If it does try and run just xfree86 and see if you can run that. Then check the permissions on the startx file.
