Re: [vox-tech] Setting up X

Okay, it looks like you have the appropriate X server starting up now.
You seem to have two remaining problems.  The first problem is your
mouse -- it's looking for a device called /dev/input/mice and isn't
finding it.  What kind of mouse are you using?  Are you running GPM (the
console mouse driver)?  The second problem is that it can't find a
suitable font to use.  Try installing some font packages:

    apt-get install xfonts-100dpi xfonts-base xfonts-scalable
