nothing seems out of order when I try dmsg. no errors, and everything it
tried to initialize is initialized.
How do I view those files? I tried using kate to open them, but obviously
that didn't work while x was down (and it told me so)

xauth: error in locking authority file /home/eddie/.Xauthority

Is another message I got while trying to start x
