I'm building a new machine, and I've run into a problem I don't understand.
When I try to run startx I get this (among other messages):

(EE) Unable to locate/open config file

I've tried puting XF86Config-4 in /etc/X11. /usr/X11R6/lib.X11, and /etc.

startx still can't seem to ind it, and it's read by the world.

Any ideas?
