I have Linux Slackware 3.3 installed on my K-6 200Mhz, 32Mb ram with an S3Virge video card and am trying to install the xwindows. After I install the XWindows, it works only once. Then when I reboot and run "startx", the system locks up completely and I cannot run it again. So, what's the problem?

Use the XF86_S3V X server. Also make sure you are not running the gpm mouse program(type gpm -k to kill it).

the gpm -k worked, but i think the trick was to run the xf86config in the bin directory, for some reason, that worked!
Thanks for your help,
