twm/xorg - doesn't boot with startx at console
This is my first time reporting an OI bug, and after six months of continuous usage I still consider myself a SunOS 5.11 newb, albet a proud one. I don't know if the issue below is a genuine bug or just a glitch with my chair-keyboard interface, but here it goes...
I've been trying to start xorg and twm from the console with startx, but I get the following (which was documented using the script command):
Script started on 9 December, 2015 04:44:54 AM EST
xauth: file /home/jed/.serverauth.1703 does not exist
Fatal server error:
(EE) Cannot move old log file "/var/log/Xorg.0.log" to "/var/log/Xorg.0.log.old"
Please consult the Project OpenIndiana support
+ Stopped startx
There are stopped jobs.
For what it's worth, my .xinitrc file looks like this:
xsetroot -solid grey &
I have also rendered the twm line as /usr/bin/twm, but with the same output as above. Also, as this installation is very new, the shell is still set to the bash default, just in case there is a possibility (however remote) that the issue is bash-related.
Thank you for your time and attention, and for all of your work on this awesome OS!
