I've got some problems with X

- I've installed 1.1-ALPHA kernel.
- I'm using Picasso II borad.
- I'm using X pre1.1 with Xcl (light)

I followed the instalation instruction written by Bernd Ernesti, but when I
type "startx" I've got the following results:

mondef not ok

/* then the screen is cleared, and after a while... */

giving up.
xinit:  Connection refused (errno 61):  unable to connect to X server
xinit:  No such process (errno 3):  Server error.

I configured the .../xdm/Xscript and .../xinit/xserverrc  as follow:

X -dev /dev/grf3 -mode 5

to open in 800x600.
I also tried with  -mode 1, but I achived the same results.
Of course NetBSD kernel is able to open itself on PicassoII, with the
resolution of 640x480x16

What have I to do?
