    help--I can't enter Xwindows, urgently!!!!

    hi, guys:

    Yestoday, when the root filesystem was full, I have to moved some .tar .gz & .rpm to some place else. After that I deleted all the files in /tmp
    Then I can worked as usually. However, after someone power off my labtop directly without inputting reboot or shutdown, I can't enter Xwindows again. btw: I can enter text mode and anything else works well.
    Whether or not there are someting wrong in configuration file of Xwindows when the system power off, or there is something wrong during removing any files from /tmp?

    error messege as follow
    Could not init font path element unix/:7100, removing from list!

    Fatal server error:
    could not open default font 'fixed'

    how to recover my problem? I am so anxious for it. thanks

    Canada, eh
    That's happened to me before. I renamed the backup of my xconfig-4 and moved the current one into another folder. Problem solved.
