PostPosted: Sun Feb 05, 2012 9:27 pm    Post subject: startx fails Reply with quote

I am relatively new to Gentoo and have just installed Xorg and KDE.

Currently, when using the startx command, I receive the following:

...
(EE)Logitech USB Receiver: failed to initialize for relative axes.
(EE)Query no Synaptics: 6003C8
(EE)SynPS/2 Synaptics TouchPad Unable to query/initialize Synaptics hardware.
(EE)PreInit returned 11 for "SynPS/2 Synaptics TouchPad"
/etc/X11/xinit/xinitrc: line 59: twm: command not found
/etc/X11/xinit/xinitrc: line 60: xclock: command not found
/etc/X11/xinit/xinitrc: line 61: xterm: command not found
/etc/X11/xinit/xinitrc: line 63: exec: exterm: command not found
/etc/X11/xinit/xinitrc: line 62: xterm: command not found
xinit: connection to X server lost

waiting for X server to shut down Server terminated successfully (0). Closing log file.

I have looked at a lot of the postings about configuring x/kde and have been unsuccessful in fixing any of these errors.
What can I do to get a graphic interface working?

brianthecompguy,

Welcome to Gentoo

It looks like Xorg started OK then quit because it found nothing to do.
You missed the testing steps in the Xorg guide.

Code:
emerge twm xterm xclock -1
now try startx again.

When that works you are ready to try to start KDE

Great!
That seems to have done something at least...

Now when I use start x, I get an interface with 3 white boxes similar to terminal windows.
Seeming as I have installed and configured KDE with http://www.gentoo.org/proj/en/desktop/kde/kde4-guide.xml, I figured that this would look very different.
Thinking something was wrong, I typed exit in one of the boxes which brought me back into the original environment.

Now, the above listing states:
...
waiting for X server to shut down XIO: fatal IO error 104 (Connection reset by peer) on X server ":0"
xterm: fatal IO error 11 (Resource temporarily unavailable) or KillClient on X server ":0"

...
Segmentation fault at address 0x10

Fatal server error:
Caught signal 11 (Segmentation fault). Server aborting

...
Server terminated with error (1). Closing log file.

What else did I miss?

brianthecompguy,

What you describe is Xorg doing its defualt thing, starting the twm window manager, three xterms (which are indeed consoles) and xclock.

This may not be 100% correct as I'm a gnome user. Make a file called ~/.xinitrc and put a signle line in there
Code:
exec startkde

Now when you do startx, it should start KDE, not twm.

Do not run any GUI as root, so that ~/.xinitrc file needs to be created when you are a normal user.

I am having the same problem and in my case i have systems without twm, xterm and xclock without any problems.

In this case i tried removing the last lines that pull the applications.

Code:
#!/bin/sh

userresources=$HOME/.Xresources
usermodmap=$HOME/.Xmodmap
sysresources=/etc/X11/xinit/Xresources
sysmodmap=/etc/X11/xinit/Xmodmap

# merge in defaults and keymaps

if [ -f $sysresources ]; then







    xrdb -merge $sysresources

fi

if [ -f $sysmodmap ]; then
    xmodmap $sysmodmap
fi

if [ -f "$userresources" ]; then







    xrdb -merge "$userresources"

fi

if [ -f "$usermodmap" ]; then
    xmodmap "$usermodmap"
fi

# start some nice programs


if [ -n "`/etc/X11/chooser.sh`" ]; then
   command="`/etc/X11/chooser.sh`"
else
   failsafe="yes"
fi

if [ -d /etc/X11/xinit/xinitrc.d ] ; then
   for f in /etc/X11/xinit/xinitrc.d/* ; do
      [ -x "$f" ] && . "$f"
   done
   unset f
fi

#if [ -n "$failsafe" ]; then
#   twm &
#   xclock -geometry 50x50-1+1 &
#   xterm -geometry 80x50+494+51 &
#   xterm -geometry 80x20+494-0 &
#   exec aterm -geometry 80x66+0+0 -name login
#else
#   exec $command
#fi


And X does not start. It also does not output any errors.

Code:
# startx
hostname: Host name lookup failure
xauth:  file /root/.serverauth.2061 does not exist

Could it be related to the localhost lookup failure ?
Bottom line is that i also don't want to install extra apps that i do not use.

HeXiLeD,

The idea of
Code:
emerge -1 twm xclock xterm
is to install something simple that works but without polluting your world file. Thats what -1 or --oneshot does.
Packages installed this way, and any dependencies thy pull in will be removed by the next --depclean, so no need to keep the packages you don't want.

Your Xorg log looks like a normal start and shutdown as it found nothing to do.

Solution is all here :
http://www.gentoo.org/doc/en/xorg-config.xml.

I had forgotten /etc/env.d/90xsession. I remember when this configuration was introduced to replace the old option.

Quote:
Using startx

Now try startx to start up your X server. startx is a script that executes an X session; that is, it starts the X server and some graphical applications on top of it. It decides which applications to run using the following logic:

If a file named .xinitrc exists in the home directory, it will execute the commands listed there.
Otherwise, it will read the value of the XSESSION variable and will execute one of the sessions available in /etc/X11/Sessions/ accordingly. You can set the value of XSESSION in /etc/env.d/90xsession to make it a default for all the users on the system. For example, as root, run echo XSESSION="Xfce4" > /etc/env.d/90xsession. This will create the 90xsession file and set the default X session to Xfce. Remember to run env-update after changing 90xsession.


It's been a while since i setup an X and i know that configuration files have changed. However i cant remember what i am missing here.

Code:
# cat /etc/env.d/90xsession
XSESSION="fluxbox"


However for some weird reason env-update did not made it work. Reboot solved it.

This problem is SOLVED

This ended up helping me to solve a related problem, thanks!

@NeddySeagoon: Thanks for the solution you supplied to the OP (I somehow missed the instructions to install those 3 files too).

The solution of course worked like a charm, I can now startx & Openbox now (after the .xinitrc thing).

I'm now looking forward to setting up the rest of the system & getting familiar with the Gentoo way.

Thanks again,

handy
