You need fonts from somewhere. I copied them from the X11R6 CDROM.
(The pre-build fonts for the sparc work fine, of course! 8^)
You could run it with a font server instead, if you like.
> Question 2: How can I terminated the X server using the mouse?
Use rlogin from some other host and kill it?
(If you're brave, drop into DDB and call psignal! 8^)
