I just installed FreeBSD 3.0 Release and am having some problems with the
X-Windows system.
The configuration is ok, since I managed to complete it without a problem.
My HW configuration is:

K5/133, 32MB memory, Diamond Stealth 3d-2000 with 4Mb Ram, 1.2Gb Filesystem.
This is the first FreeBSD box which I am setting up, and the ones I work
with are just set up as Internet Servers so that they do not have X running.

The errors which I am getting when running it from the command line with
either startx or xinit are as follows:

execve failed for /usr/X11R6/bin/X (errno 2)
_X11TransSocketUNIXConnect: Can't connect: errno=2 (this is repeated 6
xinit: No such file or directory (errno 2):
xinit: No such process

I do not know where to begin - obviously, something in the configuration is
incorrect, but I haven't the slighest clue where to begin.
