    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/ 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?
