    Default Can't load X Window system

    Hello,
    I have a problem in booting Backtrack 3 off Live CD. It fails to auto-configure X-Window system.
    I log in and type 'startx' and it shows of several lines of errors as follows :

    Code:
    X: error while loading shared libraries :/usr/lib/libz.so.1 : invalid ELF Header
    giving up.
    
    xinit: No such file or directory (errno 2): unable to connect to X server
    xinit: No such process (errno 3) : Server error.

    Might want to upgrade to bt4 since it is better etc.
    Failing that make sure the md5 sum is correct.
    If it is ok then you will probably need to try one of the other methods of booting, and/or configure the x-server. There are thousands of pages with info on how to do these things. Check the "stickies" in the newbie section, in addition to the tutorial section for bt3.

    Also welcome to the forums.
    To be successful here you should read all of the following.
    ForumRules
    ForumFAQ
    If you are new to Back|Track
    Back|Track Wiki
    Failure to do so will probably get your threads deleted or worse.

    md5 was correct for this file, it may have a problem in configuring my graphics card. I'll check out the forum.
    Anyway, thanks for the reply.

    No it is not related to your graphic card. See if you can locate the file and what the command file will result in for this file.
