    What "doesn't run" mean exactly ?

    Have you check X log for potential errors ?
    Code:
    cat /var/log/Xorg.0.log | grep EE
    Which distro are you using ?

    What are your trying to accomplish here ?

    Question what to do?

    So, "doesn't run" means that after logged in I put startx and press enter it start but nothing appear on my monitor but the HDD still working, what I think is that my video card isn't installed or have some problem with this but my computer a laptop Toshiba M50 with ATI graphics.
    I'm usinge the Fedora Core 5 x86.
    Thanks
