init: Id "x1" respawning too fast

I've solved a problem,
look at the end of this thread:
Automatic connection to the wireless network

Since then a new problem has arisen.

Startup ends with the message:
init: Id "x1" respawning too fast: disabled for 5 minutes

This error does not always occur, but quite often.
Why?
Can someone help?
Thanks

Supplement:
Do you have to change/add anything to the file /etc/rc.d/rc.4 ?

It could be related to what you saved with your network module. Does the problem occur when you don't use it?

Also do you boot Windows on the machine? I get a similar error if I don't shut Windows down before rebooting.

I have the same problem and it occurs randomly.
I found that adding a pause of 2-4 seconds at the start of /etc/rc.d/rc.4 allows me to far more consistently boot straight to X.

This happens in Virtualbox, eeePC netbook and some old Toshiba laptop as well. All random.

It's as if X is (re)starting before Porteus finishes some kind of initialisation, because startx always works. Some kind of unaccounted dependency?
