attempting to upgrade a redhat 9.0 minimal install to include xwindows. (i believe that the problem is that there is no /etc/X11/XF86Config-4 or /etc/X11/XF86Config file. in the old days, i would just type xf86config and work from there but this command is not available).
i used the graphical install to update the system using the custom option without problem. after rebooting, i type startx and get the following error:
