Just installed Slack 10, can't get X working.


X windows doesn't run since I installed Slackware 10. I'm running a Celeron 2.6ghz, 768 MB of ram, NVIDIA GeForce.

I type:

root@darkstar# X

After watching my 'X' shaped mouse cursor for a few seconds, I hit ctrl+alt+F2, then ctrl+alt+F1, I had a message on my screen. Here's m log file Xorg.0

_XSERVTransSocketOpenCOTSServer: Unable to open socket for inet6
_XSERVTransOpen: transport open failed for inet6/darkstar:0
_XSERVTransMakeAllCOTSServerListeners: failed to open listener for inet6

Release Date: 18 December 2003
X Protocol Version 11, Revision 0, Release 6.7
Build Operating System: Linux 2.4.26 i686 [ELF]
Current Operating System: Linux darkstar 2.4.26 #6 Mon Jun 14 19:07:27 PDT 2004 i686
Build Date: 05 June 2004
Before reporting problems, check http://wiki.X.Org

(==) Log file: "/var/log/Xorg.0.log", Time: Mon Nov 22 11:26:38 2004
(==) Using config file: "/etc/X11/xorg.conf"

I hope this information helps I don't know what I need to do to fix it.

Should that command be startx ? When I give one of my SL10 box the 'X' command I just get a gray screen with an X in it.

run xorgconfig to configure your hardware, then run 'startx' to start X.

you can add an alias to your ~/.bashrc so that you can use X
instead of startx..............
