well when i write startx and press enter the x
server starts but the Xclient script does not
run! with no error messages in any logfile! i've
checked the initialation scripts and found that
/etc/X11/xinit/Xclient script can't load and
run!only i see is the 'X' icon of mouse. (no
lockdowns or crashes - system works properely)

depending on your setup, you may first from root have to run xhost, see below

#xhost +

if xhost not found you may have to cd to (or add to your PATH) to /usr/openwin/bin. if successful you will get

access control disabled, clients can connect from any host

problem with Xclient

ok i'm already root. And i've traced the
scripts that are running after i've typed
'startx'. the only problem is the script xinitrc
can't run another script Xclients from it's
original location or from my home dir. I have p4
1600 with 256mb's of sdram and 2 x 40 GB's of
hd drive. when i copied the Xclients file to one
upper dir and changed the xinitrc file
everything works fine!! but from it's original
location and original configuration terminal
stops (system works properly again!!! no daemons
halt!)

Check the permissions of the directories in the path of /etc/X11/xinit/Xclient. All user should have read and execute (scan) permisions. This command should help:

ls -ld /{,etc/{,X11/{,xinit/{,Xclients}}}}

The permissions should be "rwxr-xr-x"for all entries shown. If anyone shows different, change it to a+rx. This command should do the trick:

chmod a+rx /{,etc/{,X11/{,xinit/{,Xclients}}}}
