Server Crash!?!??!

Ok, I get a command line, log in and I type startx.
Then I get an error about a temp file (it goes away to fast to read), then about 3 screens of text about problems, basically a server crash? It says something about a server crash and blah....
But, I can't enter the graphical desktop!

hm... you should give more information about your problem. Does it says X is already running and you have to remove a temp file if it is not?

How about keeping your exising questions in the ongoing threads you already have existing, in which you double posted this one when you posted it here first:

This thread will be closed, as double posting is not allowed on these forums.

That's not it, when I type startx and error comes up too fast to read, then the screen blinks like it is trying to enter the graphical desktop, but it comes up with about 3 screens of errors, and twords the bottom it says something about a server crash.
