Zenwalk Core can't get the startx to work
Hello one and all. First thing I want to say I love linux.....
And now I want to build my own system out of Zenwalk core.
I can get to the part where it is installed and to restart.
This is the info I got to try to install and to log in:
Install a minimal GUI on top of Zenwalk Core
From Zenwalk Wiki
This is a guide to show you how you can install an alternative WM on top of Zenwalk Core to create a minimal GUI installation with as less packages installed as possible.
Start with selecting a mirror and upgrading everything to the latest version:
Core is missing all the xorg packages that you need for X to work. You
can see which packages you need by running this (it will take about a
minute or two so be patient):
netpkg list N | grep "\[x\]"
netpkg everything in the list with their dependencies. You can of course leave out the drivers packages that you don't need.
You'll then need to setup xorg for your graphics card, so do:
and if you need to set up your keyboard layout run:
You can then install your favourite WM:
or whichever you like, with their dependencies.
Now log out from the root account and log in your user account. Run one of these to make fluxbox or icewm the default wm respectivelly:
cp /etc/X11/xinit/xinitrc.fluxbox ~/.xinitrc
cp /etc/X11/xinit/xinitrc.icewm ~/.xinitrc
or something similar for the WM you want to use, I think you get the point.
You now only need to do:
to start your favourite WM in your minimal Zenwalk installation. You can then add any apps you might be needing with netpkg.
Can some one tell me what am I doing wrong. Plus what is this bar and how do I make it:
netpkg list N | grep "\[x\]" What and how do I make the bar between N and grep??
Please help me. I do so much want to make my own system..
