X server start problems
I just installed the X11 x server on a old 450 MHz machine running on Fedora 3. But unfortunately I have a problem starting the x server. When starting the xserver (startx) the screen goes black and remains black. When I check the log, it gives the following error:
Could not init font path element /usr/X11R6/lib/X11/fonts/TTF/, removing from list! Fatal server error: could not open default font 'fixed' Please consult the The X.Org Foundation support at http://wiki.X.Org for help. Please also check the log file at "/var/log/Xorg.0.log" for additional information. *** If unresolved symbols were reported above, they might not *** be the reason for the server aborting. FatalError re-entered, aborting Caught signal 4. Server aborting
