[SLUG] FW: X: cannot stat /etc/X11/X
Hi, I was enjoying my apt upgraded Deb 2.2r2 when on reboot it unexpectedly
went into console mode.
startx as root in / elicited
"X: cannot stat /etc/X11/X (No such file or directory), aborting. giving up.
xinit: No such process (errno 3): server error"
I have tried editing /etc/inittab and changing default runlevel 2 to 5 in
and also Ctrl-Alt-F7
with no result.
I dont really wish to re-install a lovingly upgraded system - but at present
can see no other option.
Any ideas ?
P.S. I admit I had had a hard night before that session but the only thing I
can think of doing which might have caused it was running
apt-get clean and then
in order to increase memory.
I can't see that it would have changed any config files.
P.P.S. I think I'm still (X)sane.
