    Mandrake 10.1 X server problems


    Hi, i'm a linux newbie with some experience though And i have some problems which i cannot solve my self... it's about mandrake 10.1 dvd. I'm installing it and everything goes just fine even after reboot until the boot is complete (without any errors) I just get the blank mandrake wallapper with sign mandrake linux 10.1 in bottom right corner... It's the same no matter how many times you install it and how u install it... So i tried alt+ctrl+f2 to change screens, than i delete this x lock or something in tmp folder to disable X server and write startx to reload X server and this is what i get:
    __________________________________________________ __________

    _XServTransSocketInetCCreateListener: ...SocketCreateListeners() failed
    _XServTransMakeAllCotsServerListeners: server already running

    Fatal server error:
    Cannot establish any listening sockets - Make sure X serv isn't allready running

    Xlib: connection to ":0.0" refused by server
    Xlib: Invalid MIT-MAGIC-COOKIE-1 key
    giving up

    Xinit:Unable to connect to X serv
    Xinit:No such process (errno 3) :server error
    __________________________________________________ __________

    that's all folks!

    So please help me out with this plz,plz,plz.

    regards,
    BigBadVoodoo.

    well your method probably won't do much, as it will just start up the working, but useless, X server again. or it might start up your display manager, which would be good, and then all you'd hafta do is edit a few files in /etc and you'd be on your way.
    just go ahead and see what happens with this though,
