X server Cannot be started at display 0


X server Cannot be started at display 0


Actually, I have installed HP-UX 10.20 ACE Software Bundle B6193DA (June 1999) in hp workstation C3000 in the new hard drive.  but when I boot it, it's giving me an error " X server cannot be started at display 0.

I don't know what is the problem and I am a new user in Unix.  There are also 2  fx5 graphics cards inside my system. and I started the installation from the beginning.

is it because the graphic is not configured? or

Most likely this is due to your network not being setup. More specifically, your system cannot resolve itself. Access the command line and run nslookup with your host name. If that falls, that is the problem.
