View Full Version : again with x11 problem

Aug 14, 2006, 08:19 PM
I'm trying to get X11 running. I've searched the forums and although that search has helped me get this far, I am now in completely dark water.

I have /Applications/Utilities/X11.app on board. I click it and it brings up a console with different display attributes than my usual console. Clearly a different world. Ok.

So I go startx and it tells me

Fatal server error:
Server is already active for display 0
If this server is no longer running, remove /tmp/.X0-lock
and start again.

Quitting XDarwin...


So through Darwin ports I installed GQView. Now from an OS X terminal I can go $gqview and it grinds for a sec and then says "cannot open display".

From the X11 terminal, I go gqview and it says "gqview not found".

What's going on?

Documentation anywhere?
