Xserver (

ok, iv been able to get Xvesa to startup and get to a checkard like state (the back ground looks like a tv clsoe up, theres small red blue green and yelo dots grouped together so they look like a candy cane close up and squares from father away,

i start up using

Xvesa -mode 0x0115 -shadow && rxvt

the server started up and it blinks a window (probly rxvt) then the windows goes away (i think it changed color first), and then i get a curor with that checkard background i was talking about, so heres my question? how do you get this to work so i can use it?, when i try to exit to look for errors (using control alt backspace) it jsut returns me to a messed up terminal (i use the frame buffer terminal so i can see more at once ) so i cant tell if its a error or the xserver just dont like me,

also on a side note: does anyone get /lib/X11/rgb to work?, iv used many difrent files and all the time Xvfb stil says it cant find it (im using the files i got from cvs and also one i found in a package xrgb, non of them work)

any help plz?, thx in advance
