I installed the server version 7.10. Installed X server. Installed
xinit. When I start X using startx I get the error message no valid

cannot start X using startx?? Any solutions?
Install a *-desktop? [Ubuntu-desktop, Kubuntu-desktop, Xubuntu-desktop...]
I don't believe that Mike would have chosen the server version if he want
to have all the desktop stuff.
Mike, I had success after installing the meta package x-window-system-core.
It depends on all packages you need for running startx.
My mistake.* I assumed a desktop was needed to use X... so if he didn't
want a desktop, he wouldn't be installing X...
