    Exclamation problem when type startx on notebook

    Hi all, I am new to this forum.

    I downloaded backtrack 4 DVD image and burned onto a DVD-RW
    I am able to boot into the menu and select the first option (1024x768) one.
    And I waited until it gets to root so I typed startx.

    But then the DVD didn't load after I have typed startx and I couldn't get into the desktop.

    when i'm Using Vmware it's worrking Fine no Problem at all.....


    I put the burned DVD into my DVD drive and boot with (backtrack 3),and i also tried it with (Backtrack 4). Loads up the drivers and all, and asks me to login (I use the default username "root" and password "toor". Once in, i started the xconf to configure the screen (worked okay), and afterwards "startx", but it doesn't start properly. I get:

    giving up.

    xinit: No such process (errno 3): Server error.




    Anyone can help me out?
    Thanks

    And then again:

    Code:

    I have it:
    Code:
    Copying /etc/X11/xorg.conf-vesa to /etc/X11/xorg.conf
    cp: cannot stat '/etc/X11/xorg.conf-vesa' : no such file or directory
