So I have a box and a laptop
The box is 64 bit and the laptop 32
I download 11.4 for the first time and do a dualboot, clean install
Please note that I have setup many dualboot systems sucessfully, and this is NOT the problem. I can confidently say that.
The 64 bit wouldn’t let me startx unless I was su.
…thought maybe is was a bad download or something. Downloaded the 32bit for the laptop, logged in, same problem w/ the same output.
Please note I always boot to runlevel three.
this is an example of what I get:
xauth: file /home/****//.serverauth.1881 does not exist
Fatal Server Error:
Cannot move old log file “/var/log/Xorg.0.log” to “/var/log/Xorg.0.log.old”
Please consult the X.org Foundation support
at Novell Login
xinit: giving up
xinit: unable to connect to X server: Connection refused
xinit: server error
xinit failed. /usr/bin/Xorg is not setiud, maybe that’s the reason?
if so either use display manager (strongly recommended) or adjust /etc/permissions.local
Is it becasue I’m booting into runlevel three and something changed in between 11.3 and 11.4?
Do I need to manually move “/var/log/Xorg.0.log” to “/var/log/Xorg.0.log.old” ?
/usr/bin/Xorg is not setiud could this be the problem, I’m not really sure I know what this even is…
Do I need to chmod my permissions?
Please also understand that I’ve been playing with Linux (primarily opensuse, by the way) for about 13 months now, so I know I have a lot to learn still. I know I can fix this w/ a bit of guidance,
thanks in advance - Cheers
