HI:
    I'm sorry for my poor English.I have installed arch linux following by Beginners' Guide and Installing Arch Linux in VMware as a guest in vmware 9.But I coundn't startx(awesome).
    I have installed:

xorg-server
xorg-server-utils
xorg-xinit
xf86-video-vmware
xf86-input-vmmouse
awesome

   And my ~/.xinitrc:

exec awesome

   I also create "/etc/X11/xorg.conf.d/20-gpudriver.conf"

Section "Device"
    Identifier "card0"
    Driver     "vmware"
EndSection

   But when I input "startx", it just show a mouse cursor and crashed.

Loading extension GLX
(EE) xsetroot: unable to open display ':0' Error: Can't open display: :0 Server terminated with error

Re: [Solved]Can't start x in vmware

You are probably seeing this.
Check your version of xorg-server and xorg-server-common. ( pacman -Qi xorg-server xorg-server-common )
If they are at 1.13.0-4 you need to revert / downgrade to version 1.13.0-3.
Check if you still have the packages on your system ( ls -l /var/cache/pacman/pkg | grep xorg-server ) and if so install them ( pacman -U /var/cache/pacman/pkg/xorg-server-1.13.0-3-x86_64.pkg.tar.xz ... )
If they are not on your system, go to the arm and find the packages there. Be sure to select the correct CPU-architecture, download them to your home dir and then install them (pacman -U ...)

Or wait until the package gets updated. You could enable the testing repo for this, but I haven't tried that myself yet so I don't know if it solves the problem.

Beetles and bacteria are vastly more successful than humans in terms of survival.

Re: [Solved]Can't start x in vmware

It works!
Although there are some errors in /var/log/Xorg.0.log, but I can log into desktop.
Thanks!
