GUI does not start
Posted on 2004-10-16
I was installing SMB protocol (samba) and a graphical user interface called swat to manage samba, everything was fine till i shutdown the pc yesterday.
Today I was starting my linux (rh9) kernel 2.4.20-8 the I found that it tries to bring up the graphical interface with no success.
I switched to the text mode, typed linux single , went on with the sequecnce till the text login appears when i try to type it dissappears again trying to start x server and so on. I had no success in logging
then when I started again I hit the spacebar key to enter linuxconf try to reconfigure when I typed redhat-config-xfree86 I got the following message
xconf.py fatal io error 2 (connection reset by peer) on x server
when I type X it gives me the following error
Fatal server error:
could not open default font 'fixed'
I can send you the whole log file if you want
