I recently installed Fink on Mac OS X 2.3. I then did a fink install xfree86-base, then a fink install xfree86-rootless. I then did a fink install gnome, and then a fink install enlightenment.
So I run XDarwin in the applications folder and choose Rootless. It then quits on me and the Terminal spews this out:
XFree86 Version 18.104.22.168 / X Window System
(protocol Version 11, revision 0, vendor release 6600)
Release Date: 18 October 2002
If the server is older than 6-12 months, or if your hardware is
newer than the above date, look for a newer version before
reporting problems. (See http://www.XFree86.Org/FAQ\)
Operating System: Darwin
Using keymapping provided in /System/Library/Keyboards/USA.keymapping.
_XSERVTransSocketUNIXCreateListener: ...SocketCreateListener() failed
_XSERVTransMakeAllCOTSServerListeners: server already running
Fatal server error:
Cannot establish any listening sockets - Make sure an X server isn't already running
xinit: Connection refused (errno 61): unable to connect to X server
xinit: No such process (errno 3): Server error.
Does anyone know what I can do to make this work? I am new.
Something is listening on port 6000. If you know you have something there, quit it and try again. If you don't know anything like that, try
sudo lsof -i
The column on the left is the process, in the one on the right you can find the port number. See if you can find anything listening on port 6000.
I recently got this problem also. I once had XDarwin running fine on my machine, updated to 10.2.3 in the meantime and yesterday I tried to start X for the first time after that update to 10.2.3 - which failed. I was confused and reinstalled X - which didn't help.
I get the same output as synapticrecords does, with no process listening on port 6000.
Maybe it's a problem with 10.2.3?
...well, installing 10.2.3 did not fail but starting X. Sorry for that twisted sentence...
as a point of information.
I have a new 10.2.3 machine will latest apple updates and ADC toolkit.
I installed X11 from fink stable.
All works fine.
I removed the fink X packages and reinstalled them - still no luck. Confusingly enough, when I compiled the sources downloaded from XFree8.org and running make install did the job: X runs as expected. Bet, the problem was sitting in front of the iBook =o/
