X stays blank
Surely I'm overlooking something here...
I just installed Slackware 10 on my notebook, keeping pretty much all the defaults, except for the fact that I unchecked KDE (though I kept qt and the kdelibs). Anyway, the installation went smoothly, I selected gnome in xwmconfig, but now, when I run X, it just shows the default gray X background with the cursor.
/etc/X11/xinit/xinitrc has exec gnome-session at the end and all .xinitrc's contain the same as the default. Running as root or as other users all have the same effect: nothing but the blank X screen.
Apart from "Could not init font path element /usr/X11R6/lib/X11/fonts/CID/, removing from list!", I'm not seeing anything bad.
When I select blackbox, I get the exact same behavior.
I'm new to X.org so please don't shout. Thanks in advance.
