Good morning!

We have wonderful news! linux.detroit.sgi.com is now online!

We are ready to progress to Xwindows are we are meeting a roadblock.

/usr/X11R6/bin/X is a link to Xwrapper. There is no link to an X server
in /etc/X11. On  a startx execution only results in the foloowing
messages:

_X11TransSocketUNIXConnect: Can't connect: errno = 2
_X11TransSocketUNIXConnect: Can't connect: errno = 2
_X11TransSocketUNIXConnect: Can't connect: errno = 2
_X11TransSocketUNIXConnect: Can't connect: errno = 2
_X11TransSocketUNIXConnect: Can't connect: errno = 2
_X11TransSocketUNIXConnect: Can't connect: errno = 2

waiting for X server to begin accepting connections .
_X11TransSocketUNIXConnect: Can't connect: errno = 2
_X11TransSocketUNIXConnect: Can't connect: errno = 2
_X11TransSocketUNIXConnect: Can't connect: errno = 2
_X11TransSocketUNIXConnect: Can't connect: errno = 2
_X11TransSocketUNIXConnect: Can't connect: errno = 2
_X11TransSocketUNIXConnect: Can't connect: errno = 2
..

upon killing the process we receive:
xinit:  No such file or directory (errno 2):  unexpected signal 2

waiting for X server to shut down 

[root@linux /root]# 

Obviously we are missing the actual XServer binary.
ANy chance I can get it from someone?

Thanks!
                      Eric.
