When I run startx in Slackware 7, I get the following error:
"execve failed for /usr/X11R6/bin/X (errno 2)
_X11TransSocketUNIXConnect: Can't connect: errno = 111
giving up.
xinit: Connection refused (errno 111): unable to connect to X server
xinit: No such process (errno 3): Server error."
and server fails to start.
Any suggestions? I have run XF86Config several times, setting it up to run at 640X480, 256. Cant seem to make a dent!!!

I think there is no /usr/X11R6/bin/X link. This link should exist and point to a program that is the X-server. When you run xf86config (that's the right name, I thought..) this link will be created.
