Xmonad launch error


I originally attempted to compile and install xmonad package by package, and the end result was this:

Code:
$ xmonad
/home/adx/.xmonad/xmonad-x86_64-linux: executeFile: does not exist (No such file or directory)
X Error of failed request:  BadAccess (attempt to access private resource denied)
  Major opcode of failed request:  2 (X_ChangeWindowAttributes)
  Serial number of failed request:  7
  Current serial number in output stream:  8
I figured I left out a flag on the make file or something, so I tried the slackbuild packages next; however, the same error was present at launch.

Anyone have any ideas?

Normally Xmonad isn't installed into ~/.xmonad/, that is where the configuration file is expected. This file has to be present to launch Xmonad, and it won't generate a standard file. So I would assume that you have no configuration file, have a look at that.
