I just upgraded a computer from RedHat 6.0 (whose Xserver ran fine) to RedHat 6.2. After completing the upgrade, X now fails to work. Xconfigurator runs, correctly identifies the card and monitor, and the test-X it runs works fine. However, when I actually do startx, the screen blanks, then X stops and I get an error message:
failed to set default font path '/usr/X11R6/lib/X11/fonts/TrueType,unix/:-1'
Fatal server error:
could not open default font 'fixed'
The TrueType directory it refers to did not exist, I created one that was a link to the ttfonts directory in the hopes of making it work. Otherwise, I haven't done anything to it. Did some configuration files not get updated? I'm not sure where to go from here . . .
