Hi all.
I followed the blfs instructions to the point "Configuring The X Window System".
But when it comes to the point where I have to execute "Xorg -configure" in my home directory, it fails with following output:
_XSERVTransSocketOpenCOTSServer: Unable to open socket for inet6
_XSERVTransOpen: transport open failed for inet6/rouven-desktop:0
_XSERVTransMakeAllCOTSServerListeners: failed to open listener for inet6

Fatal server error:

/dev/tty0 doesn't exist, but where did I miss to create it?
