Thread: Minix 3 Xorg issue

  1. Minix 3 Xorg issue

    Hi,
    I'm new to Minix and am trying to get X to run under an emulated
    vmware environment. I installed all the packages off the cd with
    packman but when I try to start Xorg I get the following error:
    xinit: No such file or directory (errorno 2): no server "X" in PATH.

    I have manually: export X=/usr/X11R6/bin/X
    to my path but it does no good. Is there something that I'm doing
    wrong?
    TIA.

    why do you use startx. Try chmem and then just type xdm

    Did you use the parameter "-std-vga" to start qemu?
    I believe this is necessary for running X with Minix.
    Normally a Cirrus graphics adapter is emulated, but
    using this parameter you get the default Bochs graphics
    adapter with Vesa extensions.

    If you are using this parameter, you might try the other
    way round.

    Hi,
    Thanks, that works perfectly. Now on to installing a different window
    manager.
