problems with X


Recommended Posts

My startx won't start...

I adjusted my /etc/X11/xorg.conf

also ran the setup command.. with no luck

 

The screen says

Could not init font path element unix/:7100. removing from list!

Fatal server error:

could not open default font 'fixed'

Please consult the The X.Org Foundation support

at http://wiki.X.Org

for help.

Please also check the log file at "/var/log/Xorg.0.log" for additional information.

XIO: fatal IO error 104 (Cponnection reset by peer) on X server ":0.0"

after 0 requests (0 known processed) with 0 events remaining.

 

Don't know what else to do.

was it always like this for you ? did you try to yum update ?

 

as root do this

 

yum -y update

 

however, as fedora core 2 is no longer supported you may not get much listed

 

please give us more details and why are you not using fedora core release 4 or 5, 5 is the current release

 

cheers

Ill try to do another yum update..

I'm currently taking a Linux class in school and

Fedora Core2 is the distro they gave us to work with.

Unfortunately it wasn't always like this..

It happened after the school had a power outage.

Even the teacher couldn't figure out what went wrong.

He suggested it has something to do with a free86 file..

Not quite sure what he was talking about. So I decided to look for help

elsewhere.

try the following as root

 

cp /etc/X11/xorg.conf.backup /etc/X11/xorg.conf

 

answer yes to overwrite, then reboot the computer

 

does it work now ?

 

cheers
