[arch-general] Fail to run startx

Can you pastebin your .xinitrc? Also, you didn't mention if there is a lot
of output to the console when you run startx. What I do to catch this sort
of thing is I redirect stdout and stderr on the "exec" statement that
launches my window manager, so that I don't miss errors that scroll past
the screen too quickly. So my exec statement looks like the below:

exec /usr/bin/awesome >/home/ejohnson/var/awesome.log 2>&1
