when I try to start X with startx, I get these messages:

Does anyone know, what could be wrong?

As far as I know, this could be a problem with a wrong device file for 
tty7, but I think, it looks OK:
mediamachine ~ # ls -l /dev/tty7
crw--w---- 1 root root 4, 7 Jun 14  2008 /dev/tty7

Any more ideas?

Thanks in advance
