    Default X server connection error

    I just installed BT2 for the first time, after logging in i noticed the screen resolution was totally unreadable during shutdown, so the next time i logged in I used the xconf command, when I next used the startx command and also tried the flux command, it gave me this error:

    fatal server error:
    caught signal 11. server aborting

    /usr/X11R6/bin/xinit: connection to X server lost
    Hangup
    GOT SIGHUP
    bt ~ # xset: unable to open display ":0"

    kded: ERROR: Communication problem with kded, it probably crashed.

    If you have any guidance or advice I would greatly appricate it thank you for all your time.

    Default El corrupto.

    Just for grins, delete the .xinitrc file in the /root directory. You can't see it, but it's probably there. Then run xconf and startx and see if it's all good.

    thx for the replay i'm going to try it.

    i have tried it and i get the following massage: rm: cannot remove ".xinitrc" : no such file or directory

    so what else can be the problem or did i still do something wrong?
