Default /usr/bin/X: No such file

/usr/bin/X should be symlink to /usr/bin/Xorg,
At least that way it's in my system.

Default /usr/bin/X: No such file

Hi

when I try to start xfce (as root, since I didn't add a user until now)
I get

"/usr/bin/startxfce4: Starting X server
/etc/X11/xinit/xserverrc: line1: /usr/bin/X: No such file or directory"

I missed something when reading the Wiki. I'll read it again. Any hints
are welcome.

Cheers!

Ralf

So do you have /usr/bin/X?
Create a user and try again.

Have you installed xorg?

/usr/bin/X is owned by xorg-server 1.11.2-2

Oops

thank you , at least xorg.xinit already was installed, but the server
and driver were not installed. Now X and GDM are running. Using the
proprietary nvidia driver, regarding to X everything is ok now.

GDM still needs some tweak, since I can't log in as root and GNOME
already is listed, but currently only Xfce4 is installed.

It's not important that root doesn't work, I don't need it. I only
wanted to test it, but next thing I'll do is too add the user.

I'll have a meal first .

Ralf

PS: Hm? IIUC it already should work for root.

why do i think you used nvidia installer instead of doing pacman -S nvidia ?

maybe you should start thinking about it. Is not working because is
wrong to use root as your primary account, especially in graphics. If
you really want, since is your system and I don't care what are you
doing, check /etc/pam.d/gdm-password

auth sufficient pam_succeed_if.so uid >= 1000 quiet

Hi

dunno? I run pacman -S nvidia.

Hm?

* etc/
* etc/modprobe.d/
* etc/modprobe.d/nouveau_blacklist.conf
* lib/
* lib/modules/
* lib/modules/extramodules-3.1-ARCH/
* lib/modules/extramodules-3.1-ARCH/nvidia.ko.gz

If I use self build kernels, how do I add the module, since the installer isn't in e.g. /usr/src?! Will the package install the module to all kernels?
There still is an unused kernel ...

> ls /media/archlinux/lib/modules/extra*
/media/archlinux/lib/modules/extramodules-2.6.32-lts:
version

/media/archlinux/lib/modules/extramodules-3.1-ARCH:
nvidia.ko.gz version

... and the package didn't build a module, so there might be a reason to download from NVIDIA?!

> ls /media/archlinux/usr/src
linux-2.6.32.49-1-lts linux-3.1.4-1-ARCH

No, I don't need it, I just wonder that it doesn't work.

Thanks,

Default /usr/bin/X: No such file

PS: Dependencies are
* linux>=3.1
* linux<3.2
* nvidia-utils=290.10

So I wonder if it would build a module if I should build some kernel-rt myself. Since current one is 3.0 http://www.kernel.org/pub/linux/kernel/projects/rt/ I suspect I need to download from NVIDIA.

AUR is your friend.

nvidia-lts for kernel26-lts is in extra.
nvidia-rt from aur
