StartX Not Working + Slackware 12.2
 
Hey all.

I just installed Slackware 12.2 and everything ran smoothly.
Except, when i boot into it, login and try and start x, it doesn't work.

Code:

Fatal server error:
no screens found

Waiting for X srver to begin accepting connections
giving up

xinit: Connection reset by peer (errno 104): unable to connect to x server

Can anyone help me?

Here is my xorg.conf

Cheers.

Try adding a normal user, if you haven't done, in the terminal:
Code:

adduser whatevernameyouwant
Just press Enter to accept all the options 'til you get to adding yourself to more groups, press the up arrow key and add lp (that's for printers).
When you've finished that, exit as root, log on with your user name, then run:
Code:

startx
See if that works.
