    I just uninstalled KDE, and for some reason now at start up x11 begins and then shuts down.  I even uninstalled x11 and re-installed and it is still the same error.  Any ideas?

      Broken ~/.xinitrc script, most likely.

        That's my feeling, but I don't know how to fix it, let alone find it.  People have told me that I need to use a text editor, but none that I have will let me save to .filename .  Is there a step by step way to fix it in the osx terminal?

      Yes.  In Terminal.app, go to your home directory and type

      pico .xinitrc

      Alternatively, if you have BBEdit installed, you can type

      bbedit .xinitrc

      Hope this helped.
