    Failed to start the X server


    I had a power outage last night during a storm. Now X will not load. At the end of /var/log/Xorg.0.log I have "Fatal server error: Caught signal 11. Server aborting" Any ideas? Thanks

    I've seen this issue in the past and it was one of two things. It was either the RAM or it was something with the video drivers. Try stress testing your system, e.g., by compiling a huge package with optimization, such as your usual kernel compile. If a similar thing happens, it's the memory. You can also look at The SIG11 problem for information on how to determine if this is the case and how to fix it.
