I am using YDL 1.2, kernel 2.2.17-something or other (latest release from
I seem to have mangled my configuration so that I cannot use X unless I am
to an ethernet cable. Symptoms: when booting as a stand-alone machine,
three daemon
processes take a long time to start:

- sendmail (which I need to turn off anyway),
- xfs,and
- linuxconf (which I think I may want to turn off too).

When logged in, I type in startx and simply wait. Nothing happens until I
press CTRL-C, and
then I am returned to the Linux prompt. I don't know enough about these
processes to give
a more intelligent problem description, so if further detail is needed, feel
free to tell
me what details are required.

Any help here would be much appreciated.
