(Answer) (Category) Linux on PowerPC FAQ-O-Matic : (Category) X Windows :
Can't run startx after 970129 update.. I get a help listing
After installing 970129, I couldn't use startx as it would display
a bunch of help text for "X", but not run.
Open your startx file (use "which startx" to find it)
and edit the line:
It probably contains: "-optionmouse" to make the option key
unnessasary for using the pseudo mouse buttons.
Change this to:  "-nooptionmouse"
This was changed in the 970129 X11 update.
