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:
I already installed all fonts included on the Fedora 3 CD as well as all the x server components. After a search on this forum, other forums and on search engines I still don't know how to solve this problem.
Could not init font path element /usr/X11R6/lib/X11/fonts/TTF/, removing from list!
Fatal server error:
could not open default font 'fixed'

You might have better luck going with a lighter WM such as fluxbox or IceWM.
Even if you can get it running Kde, you won't be happy.
Kde is a resource hog.
Have you run It might help.
