XFree86 Can't open display ""
I seem to be running into a common error after installing XFree86 on Sarge. My goal is to run XFree86, however when I type xhost +<localhost>
or other x commands, i get the following message:
#xhost: unable to open display""
Echoing $display on the screen prints out an empty line.
When I simple type in startx, it exits with a message saying
Cannot open device /dev/input/mice I've tried using insmod to add mice module from /lib/.../kernel/modules/. Loading startx after that loaded a blank X screen and hung up the system.
I have tried installing KDE and GNOME, However I received the same feedback not being able to open display.
Could you suggest any possible solutions or steps that I may take to get XFree up running?
