Newbie with X & XFCE Problem
I have a little experience with Free and PC-BSD, but wanted to work a bit with OpenBSD and xfce. I successfully installed OpenBSD 5.1, and got the 1980's style login page, so I assume that X is working. I installed the requisite set of packages for xfce (I think!). But when I go into xterm and type
in order to launch xfce, I'm given that desktop with xterm in the middle of it. If I close xterm, I also close xfce...@$@@%$@!$%!@%!!!
If I ctrl-alt-f1 to get tty and no xterm, and log in that way, typing startxfce4 gives me an error:
/usr/local/bin/startxfce4: starting X server
Fatal server error: server is already active for display 0.
If this server is no longer running, remove /tmp/.X0-lock
Invalid MIT-MAGIC-COOKIE Invalid MIT-MAGIC-COOKIE Invalid MIT-MAGIC-COOKIE Invalid MIT-MAGIC-COOKIE keyxinit: giving up
xinit: unable to connect to X server: Resource temporarily unavailable
xinit: xinit: server error
So as root, I rm /tmp/.X0-lock, and try startxfce4 again, and...absolutely....
nothing....happens. The system just hangs.
If I try X -configure as root from tty, I get exactly the same error. So I believe I have some sort of X setup mistake. Can someone make a suggestion? Ideally, I'd like to use a login screen to start up xfce4 automagically when I give it a username and password.
Thanks in advance!
