5. Why doesn't "startx -quartz" work for me?
A few users are having trouble with our Xserver package. Here are some things to try.
pkg_add -f http://prdownloads.sourceforge.net/GNU-darwin/XFree86-4.1.0_4.tg
A more robust procedure would be to install the earlier version first,like this.
pkg_add -f http://prdownloads.sourceforge.net/GNU-darwin/XFree86-4.0.3.tgz
pkg_add -f http://prdownloads.sourceforge.net/GNU-darwin/XFree86-4.1.0_4.tgz
If you still get errors, you a one of a handful of people, who will have to install a new
Xserver according to the latest instructions at XDarwin.
The current theory about this problem is that the /etc/X11 spaghetti links are incompatable between
various Xdarwin revisions and GNU-Darwin Xserver packages. This problem is aggravated if you keep
your X11R6 directory on a different partition than Unix root, because XFree86 likes
to use hard links, which do not cross devices with Darwin.
