can not start 'startx' from the prompt and missing files
Tue Apr 22 17:02:00 GMT 2003
I am posting two questions thinking the two may be related.... I appreciate
your help. Kiwhan
I am trying to find out why command 'startx' at the prompt gives me an error
message and won't start the xwindow. Cygwin1.dll is installed only in
C:\cygwin\bin. Below is the error message on the screen.
>xinit: No such file or directory (errno 2): no server "X" in PATH
>Use the -- option, or make sure that /usr/X11R6/bin is in your path and
>that "X" is a program or a link to the right type of server

My .xinitrc file in my home directory says this. My question is...
shouldn't I have the .Xresources and .Xmodmap files in the
/usr/X11R6/X11/xinit directory also? I checked and I don't have that
directory at all.
