    X will not start on newly compiled kernel


    I recently compiled a new 2.6.7 kernel, but when I loaded it up X would not start. I got the following error output:
    Code:
    _XSERVTransSocketOpen: socket() failed for local
    _XSERVTransSocketOpenCOTSServer: Unable to open socket for local
    _XSERVTransOpen: transport open failed for local/george:0
    _XSERVTransMakeAllCOTSServerListeners: failed to open listener for local
    
    Fatal server error:
    Cannot establish any listening sockets - Make sure an X server isn't already running
    On Google I found that I might need to enable Unix sockets in the kernel configuration, but I can't find that option in menuconfig. Any ideas?
