I have the following problem: yesterday my laptop crashed, system did not respond, sound was in an endless loop. So I got the button and restarted it.

I usually boot into the command line, and everything seems to be working fine - wicd-curses is giving me wireless connectivity and I can run all sorts of commands. Anyway, when I type 'startx' to start the xserver, it seems to be fine, no error messages at all - except it does not fire up my window manager.

I already reinstalled the xserver and my window manager, but still the same error.

Could any of you help me with that? Thanks.
