Description daz7997 2000-12-27 22:59:58 EST
xfs seems to start correctly during init sequence, but by the time the machine gets to the end of booting to runlevel 5, xfs is dead, with a lock file still hanging around. In the boot log, there is an error: _FontTransSocketINETCreateListener: Unable to get service for -1 _FontTransMakeAllCOTSServerListeners: failed to create listener for tcp and messages that xfs has shutdown successfully after that. Does xfs try to get something via TCP, can't find it, then kills itself and leaves it's carcass in /var/lock/subsys? Thanks.

Is this using the X that shipped with 6.2, or did you install different binaries? The XFree86 packages that shipped with 6.2 have important patches for the font server that may not exist in other packagings...

This is X that came with 6.2 yes. It was running fine for a while, then I tried to install some new fonts, accidentally deleted the old ones, then I removed all the fonts, and re-installed them all again from the 6.2 install CD. Was there a special file in the fonts directories that xfs needs? Can I recreate it? Is this a dead end?

Use mkfontdir in the font directories to recreate any fonts.dir files.
