Default How to set which Xserver a wm-uses

Hello, I installed openbox, but when I run startx with ~/.config/openbox/autostart.sh containing openbox-session, it starts xf86. What should I do so that it uses Xorg instead?

When I run the standard startx without openbox-session it runs with Xorg. The same is true for startxfce4.

I guess that the entry [server] in the startx argument list is not a place where you would put Xorg.

Hey,

which verions NetBSD do you use? And did you compilled this openbox from pkgsrc or rather installed from ftp? If ftp openbox will use XFree86.

Rgrds,

Piotr

I compiled it from pkgsrc and I dont recall any option about Xorg or Xf86 in make configure. Perhaps I can just install xfce4 and change the wm to openbox there.
