    Xserver problems


    I have been running RedHat Advanced Server 2.1 for weeks on my server with no problems on the Xserver it would start-up on reboot without any issues. Now when I try to start it I get the following message at the end of the XFree86.0 logfile.

    Could not init font path element unix/:7100, removing from list!

    Fatal server error:
    could not open default font 'fixed'
    I have tried running Xconfigurator and the screen came up and I was able to click on the accept button on the graphical test screen. So the mouse seems to be working. I have checked the /etc/X11/XF86Config-4 values aginst those in /dev/ and they are all valid. I don't know what else to check.

    Please Help!

    this is because xfs is not starting, type /etc/rc.d/init.d/xfs restart. It might have not shut down correctly, making xfs unable to start up again.

    RE: xfs

    I have tried to restart xfs but with no luck. I tried to check the xfs server using the command "xfsinfo -server unix:/7100" which returned the message: 'xfsinfo: unable to open server "unix/:7100"'. Is there anything else that could be causing the issue?

    that is the issue. Edit /etc/X11/XF86Config-4 and remove the line that has unix:/7100 in it (or just comment it out by putting a # at the beginning of the line)
