After completing the LFS book (CVS 200203xx) I started installing the basics for a desktop system, and that of course includes the XFree86 software. There lies the problem of today.. :P
I tried the X11 hint
, but ran into some trouble with compiling; it seized, `make' at xclock. Not sure what I'd need it for anyway I just put a dummy Makefile in the xclock subdir. (if it IS something X-system critical, just throw sticks at me and tell me to try compiling the lot again..) X compiled.
Next the XF86config editing: load GLX, Driver "nvidia", mouse, all seemingly in order. Yet on startx, X or XFree86 it tries to start but crashes on a code 11.. I'd love to post /var/log/XFree86.0.log, but according to `less' that's a binary file? :?
Where should I look for the problem at hand? How can I view the log-file?
Background info: Asus 6800 GeForce DDR 32mb videocard, kernel 2.4.18, latest NVidia driver, seemingly in working order. (I had X installed before thru the default install way described at XFree.org, but decided to redo in favour of shared zlib and freetype fonts, yet that X actually gave me a mousepointer and THEN refused to give me back my console)
