I FRUCKED UP LINUX!
i was mounting a FAT32 HD and i finally worked it out.....but i mounted the wrong one ....so i went to rename it but it wouldn't let me...so i deleted the mount pt. without thinking that it would obviously delete my precious music collection :oops:
I booted into windows to check if infact my music had been deleted (well half of it...) and yes it had been deleted...so i thought ok i will boot back into linux and get it out of the trash......
So I booted into linux and logged on (up to here was fine) BUT when i typed in 'startx' the screen went blank for about 7sec or so and a whole screen of shite came up....which i think teh only important thing on it was the following:
could not init font path element unix/:7100, removing from list!
Fatal server error
could not open default font 'fixed'
any clues? i would be very grateful.....!!
p.s. i am using red hat 9.....and i have a working boot floppy...also windows works fine
It would seem that your font server is malfunctioning. I can't say why, but what an excellent timing... =/
Try to log in as root and run "service xfs restart", and see what that says. If it still doesn't work after that, run "tail /var/log/messages" to see if the font server reported an error.
