Hi,

thanks to both for your replied.
When I run startx, I get some errors-
-------------------
(**) FontPath set to "unix/:-1"

Fatal server error:
open_framebuffer: failed to open /dev/fb0 (No such device)

X connection to :0.0 broken (explicit kill or server shutdown).
-------------------
I have set init ro run level 5. It seems to try to bring up the X-windows login, but reverts to the non-x login. Then it evens reverts to run level 3 !
I wonder whats hapenning?

I appreciate your help,
thank you.
