x not starting for user or root.
Well i was told to make a user ,so i didn't log in as root.So i did useradd james then passwd james as root,after that was done i came out of root and loged in as james then typed startx this gave me many errors like no fonts no windows no gnome and so on,When i log in as root its stuck in the 640 x mode,when i get online with the slackware then i will post my /etc/X11/xorg.conf,but at this time i'm lost.

Have you tried reconfiguring xorg.conf? Just do "xorgconfig" as root and answer the questtions correctly.
And can you get into the X system but jumping right into run level 4 (typing "init 4" as root)?
Ok that seems to of helped thxs,but im still using root i have made a user acount with useradd james but when i log in and startx with james i get this error,
time out in loading athority file.//.x athority.
hey i know youve probably fixed this or moved on but this happened to me and the only way i found to get around it was to use useradd -m instead of plain useradd. i dont exactly know what it does, but it worked for me!
Hi stinkoman !
This thread is pretty old. I would suggest to post suggestions in a bit recent threads only.
