Problem after 'startx' command


So I tried to enter that startx command, and this is what was returned. The forum would not let me post a URL, so make sure you put the World Wide Web etc. in front of it.

Any ideas?

try to configure first your system. it could be possible that you dont have a working XF86Config file.
