Menu Fonts in X - windows are unreadable (Including clock, Start button & Menu topics. am Using S3 server for My graphics card - S3 Trio 32 (2048 ram). DAC chip on this card is an 86C732 -p this is not listed in S3 server documentation. current Version of X - windows Running is 3.1.2. have attempted to upgrade to 3.2 as believe may have a font Cache problem, but upgrade was not successful. have read all documentation at my disposal but to no avail. Is there some way this problem can be worked around on version 3.1.2 or must I upgrade to 3.2 (upgrade stated I must have X11R6.1 - Currently have X11R6 and Id.so - 1.7.) am running Red hat Linux 4.0 on i486 ELF. If Upgrade to 3.2 is only answer please could you detail what I have to download & where, and possibly some hints on how to go about actually performing the upgrade, as existing documentation is very vague and fragmented.

Thankyou

I don't think it's a question of Xserver.
Probably you should look at your config files of your window
manager, and check your X-fonts installation.
Try just to reinstall Xfonts and the manager you use.

I have removed and installed these fonts several times already via the x windows setup file. The problem still exists.  I realise I did not put this in my question hence my grading.
