I just installed Debian 3.0 on my laptop. I used the utility to install the x packages, and some others. For some reason they didn't install.
I tried a 'startx'
but I guess none of these packages installed. How do I install X?

You used what utility to install the X packages?

I'm not normally a Debian user, but 'apt-get install gnome' (or KDE, fluxbox, or whatever) should resolve all dependencies and take care of everything.
Do what you want with the girl, but leave me alone!

Me either .. i am not A debian user, but perhaps you can find the answer here :
and about "startX" i found the answer here :
Real post here
Does the file /usr/X11R6/bin/X exist? It should be installed by the
xserver-common package. Do you have an X server installed? Try:
apt-get install xserver-xfree86
I copy the statement to make sure you got the point.

exellent, I did a apt-get install x-window system. Installed fine without any problems. Now I have to install kde.. hopefully I don't screw this up. Thanks for the help guys
I installed kde, and as it loads I get an error:
modprobe: modprobe: Can't locate module char-major-13
I tried searching some information on google, but I couldn't find anything
