    could you post some more info? i.e. the exact error message and the output of 'ps -e|grep [x,X]' ?? (you may have to check the syntax on that regex}

    okay sys specs for you

    Gfti 4200
    asus a7n8x-x
    xp2600+
    1260mb pc3200ram


    and the literal error says:
    Fatal server error:
    Requested entity already in use
    All the other info surrounding that is all just II - information

    As in its all preceded by the double I to mention the information namely system specs etc, drivers (keyboard i saw, video card etc)
