I had a perfectly working Arch distribution in my HP laptop. It ran like a champ for a year, until it crash on the last update. I try to repair it without success, so I said what the hell ill do a clean install. Well this is where the problems started, I downloaded the 0.7.1 iso. After I installed with out any errors I update the system doing a pacman -Syu. Then I proceeded to install xfce (pacman -S xfce4 xfce4-goodies). It installed everything without errors. But when I type startxfce4 it gives me a error(xinit not found).
I try to run startx but the command does not exist. I install Hwd and did a hwd -xa, it responded with no errors, but X is still not working. The first time I install Arch in the same laptop i just did a pacman -S xfce4 xfce4-goodies, follow by startxfce4 and it work just fine.
Please Help!!! :shock:
pacman -S xorg-xinit
will give you startx/xinit.
