    Default I canīt start backtrack5+gnome with startx

    Hello, good afternoon, I am from argentina and I don`t speak english very well.
    I am new in backtrack , i like it, but yesterdey i had a problem.
    I turned on my notebook and when backtrack was started i put Startx but an error ocurred:
    (Something like this)
    Faltal server error:
    Could not create lock file in /tmp/.tX0-lock
    ddxSigGiveUp: Closing log
    giving up.
    xinit: COnnection refused (errno 111): unable to connect to X server
    xinit: No such process (errno 3): Server error
    xauth: error in locking authority file /root/.Xauthority
    Why this error ocurred?
    What is the solution?
    Thanks to the community. Bye!

    If i remember good i've had the same problem on BT4. When i typed
    Code:
    fixvesa
    it started to work and I didn't have more problems with X-server.

    the error is the result of "something" creating a problem with xserver permissions. did you possibly add a new user to the system?

    the real solution would have been to google search "error in locking authority file /root/.Xauthority " or some other portion of the error which printed; probably then prompting you to do some reading, and then deleting all .Xauthority files, rebooting, and a restart of the X server. still a better first post question than many


    root@bt:~# locate .Xauthority
    /root/.Xauthority
    root@bt:~# rm /root/.Xauthority


    this is all i get on a working b|t 5 install with only a root user. perhaps you may find more. remove them also prior to reboot.

    hope this helps you.
