problem starting X
 
Hi,

when I try to start X with startx, I get these messages:

Does anyone know, what could be wrong?

As far as I know, this could be a problem with a wrong device file for
tty7, but I think, it looks OK:

mediamachine ~ # ls -l /dev/tty7
crw--w---- 1 root root 4, 7 Jun 14 2008 /dev/tty7


Any more ideas?

Thanks in advance
Marc

Your hint helped me to realize, that I switched my xdriver to
openchrome. After reading some docs in the net, I witched to the
openchrome overlay, but this changed the error message only marginally
(see below). I also rebuild the complete system, changed some USE flags,
checked my complete configuration, ...


The thing is, that this setup worked before (a few months before). It is
a small hobby project, I'm working on irregularly, updating it every few
weeks or so. It is build with ROOT option of emerge and placed
completely in initrd of my kernel (therefore the complete system is in
memory). The only major changes I did beside using now openchrome were
switching the kernel from 2.6.20 or so to 2.6.24 and switching to
baselayout-2 and openrc.


I'm completely stuck here. Does anyone here has an idea what I can do?

I will answer after 9th July, since I will be on holidays until then.


Thanks for any help in advance.

Marc
