    X doesnt start or blinks at 1024x768 and 800x600


    Hello all,

    I'm getting 2 errors when I try to run `X` or `xinit`...

    Code:
    root@bayX:~# xinit
    xinit:  Server error.
    and

    Code:
    root@bayX:~# xinit
    
    giving up.
    xinit:  Connection refused (errno 111):  unable to connect to X server
    xinit:  No such process (errno 3):  Server error.
    I try to do `nmap localhost` but the server isnt running (port 6000). These things started happening when I put kernel 2.6.13 on it. The only one way to run desktop is by `xdm` and only with 16bits 640x480, but its configured for 800x600, and when I run as 1024x768 the X doesnt answer and start blinking... no one of these errors happened when Ive installed my distro.

    Someone knows whats happening with my `X`? and, its necessary to recompile it again?
