Problem starting XWin Server
Thu Jul 14 14:11:00 GMT 2011
startxwin: No such file or directory (errno 2): unable to
connect to X server
startxwin: No such process (errno 3): Server error.
The server is never started - no process in the Windows "Resource
Monitor". When I try to start xedit (or whatever X based app) nothing
happens, nothing appears.
As for FAQ, I'm afraid I don't see anything that might help. I looked
before I posted the original e-mail.
