    I recently installed Minix w/ X11 under VPC 2004. The install went fine w/ no
    problems. Logged in as root, I tried starting X with 'xdm.' Nothing happens
    and I'm returned to the prompt. Anyone know what I should try?

    All of the files in /var/log/ are empty.

    I tried 'startx' too, but the system just hangs.

    Thanks for your help.

    make sure that you're not using 24bit color, which isn't supported in VPC.
    Select 16 or 32bit color. Also, you could try using the generic VESA driver
    instead of the S3 Trio driver.
