Thanks for your quick response to my question.
I do not have any X server running. I have stand alone workstation. I have tried the "startx" in the past and even today, this was the message on the screen:
fatal server error:
no screens found
Please, what else can I do to clear this problem?
<aside>Please don't contact me privately in regards to a forum post...it helps everybody if the entire thread stays out in the open.</aside>
"no screens found" means that you don't have a (valid) screen section in your xorg.conf file. Have you configured X yet? If not give 'xorgconfig' a try and go from there...
