XServer Help on Arch Linux?
Basically, what I did was
pacman -Syu xorg-server pacman -S xorg-xinit pacman -S xorg-twm xorg-xclock xterm pacman -S xorg-utils xorg-server-utils startx
When I ran startx, I got an error:
Fatal server error: no screens found
About fifteen seconds later, I got another error:
xinit: giving up xinit: unable to connect to X server: Connection refused xinit: server error
Xserver auto terminated at this point.
I'm fairly new to linux, but I understand a good amount of it. If anyone could clear up what causes these errors / how to fix them that would be greatly appreciated.
Linode instances do not have any video hardware in their virtual machine environment. It does not make sense to run an X server on a Linode. Why do you want to do this?
I'm planning on VNCing into it.
Sooo… instead of startx, just run vnc4server or something… it shouldf act as X11 display :1 or something siliar, and you should be able to connect to it…
I get further errors when running a vnc program.

For the locale error, I have no idea how to build them in archlinux - I'd run 'dpkg-reconfigure locales' here.
rtucker@witte:~$ ssh -X framboise ... rtucker@framboise:~$ xterm (xterm appears!)
It requires the ssh session stay up, and it is noticeably slow, but it sure beats deploying an entire GUI stack just to do one thing.
