Stuck in commandline mode
I just tried to setup a dualhead system but by doing this I stranded at runlevel 3 !
How did this happen ?
I opened Yast , set my monitor to
text mode only and rebooted.
The next thing that happened was that
indeed both of my monitors came back to live
instead of one but I cannot get out of this
I tried to start the X server with the "startx"
command and the answer I got was ...
"There is no link /var/XR6/bin/X to the
correct X server binary.
Please configure the correct X Server
with SaX/SaX2, which will create the
missing link. I'm aborting now"
I went to see if /var/XR6/bin/X still even
existed because it was there 10 minutes ago
and it wasn't !!!!!
What to do ???? Please help !!

First I think you need to be in run level 5, so use "init 5" to do this.
Then run "sax" or "sax2" to run the X configuration routine.
This all needs to be done as root by the way.Registered Linux user #388328 || Registered LFS user #15880

try the command startx, though you might want to do xorgcfg first
