I have been having some problems running X11 while **logged in under >console mode** in OSX.
1. I used to be able to type something like "startx" in the command line and that would start up X11. That no longer works since I reinstalled it on a new HD. Am I forgetting something? I found some stuff in my /usr/x11r6, but those just open a gray screen with the X-shaped cursor; no terminals windows open and I cant get out.
2. How do I get out of X11 and continue startup to MacOSX. "Exit" and "logout" works fine in the normal >console mode command line, but not in the X11 terminals. If I logout or exit in X11, I'm left with a gray screen with the X-shaped cursor. I then end up having to press the restart button.
do you have your own .xinitrc or are you using the default?
if you have your own .xinitrc, what is the program (X11 app) you are using to hold X up? is it possible this app is not visisible on your screen (possibly off the visible desktop)?
before exiting your last xterm, do a 'ps aux' to see what processes are running that may be X11 apps connected to your Xserver.
