Unhappy Need help with HardenedBSD. Xorg not running.

I just installed HardenedBSD in a virtual machine and in it, I installed
Xorg and Ice-WM for my desktop environment.

However, I wasn't able to get Ice-WM running (entered both "exec icewm" and "exec icewm-session") but I got this error.

iIceWM: Can't open display: <none>. X must be running and $DISPLAY set.

Help please?

startx $(which icewm-session)
echo 'exec icewm-session' > ~/.xinitrc
If you choose then second option then you'll only have to run the plain 'startx' command to launch the desktop thereafter.
Linux is for people who hate Windows. BSD is for people who love UNIX.
