In this chapter we will set up X, if it does not work properly already.
To set up X, check that you have installed the following packages:
XFree86-100dpi-fonts and/or XFree86-75dpi-fonts
gdm, kdm or xdm
Maybe more packages here...
apt-get install xserver-xfree86 xfonts-100dpi xfonts-base xbase-clients xdmto get the most important files.
Download my XF86Config-4.3, and copy it to /etc/X11/XF86Config. You can now start X with the command startx. On Debian you may start a graphical login screen with
/etc/init.d/xdm startOn YellowDog, SuSE and Mandrake, just hop to runlevel 5, and it will start a display manager for you.
