    Failed to start the X server (your graphical user interface)


    I know that this problem was discussed in more than one forums, but I could not find what should I do with my case

    Running FC7. I installed several packages (I do not remember what are they) last night. Today, when I booted up the computer, I got this message:

    Failed to start the X server (your graphical user interface). It is likely that it is not set up correctly. Would you like to view the X server output to diagnose the problem.

    I tried Ctrl-Alt-F1 where I get the X server failure and go to a command line.

    1- cat /var/log/Xorg.0.log | grep EE
    Code:
    (WW) warning , (EE) Error, (NI) Not Implemented, (?) unknown, (EE) unable to locate /open config file
     
    (II) Loading Extension MIT-SCRENN-SAVER
    (EE) Failed to load module vga (module does not exist, 0)
    (EE) open /dev/fb0: No Such file or directory
    (EE)<default pointer>: Cannot find which  device to use.
    (EE)xf860OpenSerial : No Device specified
    (EE)<default pointer>: cannot open input device
    (EE) PreInit failed for Input device <default pointer>
    2- Then I run : Xorg -configure
    Code:
    Xorg is not able to detect your mouse. Edit the file and correct the Devices.
    Your xorg.conf file is /root/xorg.conf.new.
    To test the server, run 'X -config /root/xorg.conf.new
    3- Then I run Xorg -config /root/xorg.conf.new
    Code:
    Fatal sever error:
    failed to initialize core devices
    4- Then I run system-config-display --reconfig

    The output was :
    Code:
    xconf.py: Fatal 10 error 104 (Connection reset by peer) on X server:17.0.
    --display=:1: Fatal 10 error 104 (Connection reset by peer) on X server:17.0.xconfig.py

    Xorg is not able to detect your mouse. Edit the file and correct the Devices.
    Your xorg.conf file is /root/xorg.conf.new
    To test the server, run 'X -config /root/xorg.conf.new

    yum remove xorg-x11*

    then

    yum install xorg-x11*

    It did not resolve the problem

    Edit xorg.conf file.
    Code:
    Section "Screen"
        Identifier "Screen0"
        Device     "Videocard0"
        Monitor    "Monitor0"
        DefaultDepth     24
        SubSection "Display"
            Viewport   0 0
            Depth     8
             Modes    "1280x1024" 1024x800" "800x600" "640x480"
        EndSubSection
        SubSection "Display"
            Viewport   0 0
            Depth     16
             Modes    "1280x1024" 1024x800" "800x600" "640x480"  
      EndSubSection
        SubSection "Display"
            Viewport   0 0
            Depth     24
             Modes    "1280x1024" 1024x800" "800x600" "640x480" 
      EndSubSection
    EndSection

    Add Modes in xorg.conf file. Mode line is missing in your xorg.conf file.
    Code:
    Section "Screen"
        Identifier "Screen0"
        Device     "Videocard0"
        Monitor    "Monitor0"
        DefaultDepth     24
        SubSection "Display"
            Viewport   0 0
            Depth     8
             Modes    "1280x1024" 1024x800" "800x600" "640x480"
        EndSubSection
        SubSection "Display"
            Viewport   0 0
            Depth     16
             Modes    "1280x1024" 1024x800" "800x600" "640x480"
      EndSubSection
        SubSection "Display"
            Viewport   0 0
            Depth     24
             Modes    "1280x1024" 1024x800" "800x600" "640x480"
      EndSubSection
    EndSection
    In case it doesn't work, set Driver value to vesa.
    Code:
    Section  "Device"
              Identifier      "Card0"
              Driver          "vesa"
              VendorName      "Intel Corporation"
              BoardName       "Mobile 945GM/GMS/940GML Express Integrated Graphics Controller"
              BusID           "PCI:0:2:0"
    EndSection
