    INIT: Id ''x'' respawning too fast - RHEL 6 error


    Hi all,

    I am getting the following error:
    INIT: Id "x" respawning too fast: disabled for 5 minutes

    This is the x configuration in my /etc/inittab:
    x:5:respawn:/etc/X11/prefdm

    Any idea?

    Look at /var/log/Xorg.0.log to see why this is happening. This is usually caused by the X-Server crashing. Once this is fixed your errors will go away.
