Re: Fatal server error.

Dear IB Kim,

The command "startx" is only running under the console mode, which means that you can only run it from the Unix/Linux server directly. To run an X Window environment such as KDE or Gnome using Xmanager, you should use commands like "startkde" or "gnome-session".

Hope this solve your problem. If you still have some issues with Xmanager to run successfully, please do not hesitate to post your writing in here. For Korean support, you can visit us at http://www.netsarang.co.kr. Thank you.
