" .xinitrc file not found "
Posted on 1997-06-21
I have installed Red Hat ver 4.0 and setup XF86Config using xf86config file as root writing it to /usr/X11R6/lib/X11.
I located .xinitrc in /usr/X11R6/lib/X11/xinit and located this in my PATH statement. When I execute 'startx' I get an error message :
xinit: No such file or directory (errno 2): no server "X" in PATH
xinit: Invalid argument (errno 22): unable to connect to server
xinit: No such process (errno 3): Server error
As I said, I have physically looked at .xinitrc inside xinit dir ...it's there and in the PATH statement....
Any ideas?? Thank You.
I tried answer from jprohart but no luck.....
I did find out that I don't have an "X" dir under "bin".
If this is my problem, can I mount the CD I installed from and get that sub dir? I really don't understand how this got left out.... the installation was a straightforward prompt setup and asked to install 'X-Windows'.
