.xinitrc file should be located in $HOME directory. This is a simple
SHELL script. You may put here all commands you need to be executed when
you start your X client. Here is the example of it:
Comments are '#' as in usual SHELL scripts. .xinitrc file should be
executable. If it is not present in your home directory - create it.
For more information you may reffer to xinit (1) manual page.

We need more clarification here. When do you get such message? What
actions do you perform before this?

Commenting out is done by # character.
