GUI doesn't start


hey there,

at first sorry for my English
I tried to get some answers at other forum-pages, without any result.

I have installed XenServer 5 on my notebook. And on XenServer I have a SLES 10 running as a virtual machine.

The GUI doesn't start, even when I try to start it manually by 'startx'

Code:
SLES:~ # startx
xauth:  creating new authority file /root/.serverauth.3144

yes, I already tried, here's the output of sax2:

Code:
SaX: Checking update status for vga driver
SaX: initialization already done
SaX: call [ sax2 -r ] if your system has changed !

SaX: startup

xc: sorry could not start configuration server
xc: for details refer to the log file:

    /var/log/SaX.log

xc: abort...
I guess you wanna have the sax.log now? -->

I don't know anything about virtual machines but do you have to start your x-server as root? That's not recommended for non-virtual machines but maybe the vm's are different.
cheers,

thanks for the answers

yes, I also tried startx as root
...same result

the weird thing is: last time I installed SLES10 (same install-CD like this time) on a non-virtual machine I didn't have any problems with the GUI. It startet automatically without configuring anything.

Sorry, I know you started it as root. That is shown in your posted output. My question is why you are starting it as root. Have you tried and failed starting it as a normal user?

the first time I tried to start as a normal user and I got the output I posted.
I hoped it'll take any effect when I start as root

Sorry, you've lost me. According to your 1st post you did this:
Code:
SLES:~ # startx
xauth:  creating new authority file /root/.serverauth.3144
That appears to mean that you're starting X as root, no? Have you ever tried to start X manually as a normal user?

Have you removed or fixed the "ChangeMe" module that is causing the fatal error?

Ask somebody running the same system as you. Is there a Linux - Distributions forum for your distro? If so, ask there (start a new thread like "Removing a bad module from system") in that forum.
Best of luck,
