    why not use xorgconfig? and what distro?


    pocknet ~ # Xorg -configure
    _XSERVTransSocketOpenCOTSServer: Unable to open socket for inet6
    _XSERVTransOpen: transport open failed for inet6/pocknet:0
    _XSERVTransMakeAllCOTSServerListeners: failed to open listener for inet6
    and thats your problem right there


    EDIT: just seen your on gentoo, just use xorgconfig or xorgcfg

    Open up startx in a text editor, and find a line near the top that should be called serverargs, put -nolisten tcp into this, it should now look like serverargs="-nolisten tcp", now run startx again and it should be fixed.
