startx missing twm and xclock

Something else interesting came up when I ran:
sudo -H Xorg -configure
specifically, a segmentation fault at address 0x50.  This is an old amd 
k8 Athelon system so may be too old to run xorg I don't know.
I did install xorg-xclock and xorg-twm and startx takes me into a 
windowed environment though commands I key in have no effect for some 
reason.  I'm going to try running startx and then do 
control-alt-backspace and see if that will even shut xorg down.
