Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 101421
X server doesnt start when rebooting (after cancelling installation of xchat 2.0.4)

User-Agent: Opera/7.10 (Windows NT 5.1; U) [en]
Description of problem:
I downloaded xchat-2.0.4-0.i386.rpm.
During the installation I got a message that i needed to
install 2 additional files lib???.so.4 and lib???.so
I wasn't sure if I could use them because the site (were i wanted to download
the two files) mentioned that they were for redhat 9. So I aborted the
installation for xchat. After that I could't download dcc files.
So I restarted the computer but x server didn't.
The message i received is:
Could not init font path element unix/:7100, removing from list!
Fatal server error - Could not open default font 'fixed'
I looked up the version of xchat which is installed: that is still my old one:
I tried the command: rpm -qif. It produced a list of all rpm's which are
installed but it didn't show an error
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Didn't try (Couldn't try)

Red Hat does not have xchat 2.0.x for Red Hat Linux 8.0, so I'm not sure
why you're filing a bug about xchat 2.0 in Red Hat bugzilla. File xchat
2.0 bugs in xchat's bug tracker.

This message is not a bug. It is an error message from the X server telling
you that your font installation is misconfigured or messed up. It's one of
the most frequently reported types of error messages that people encounter
with XFree86, so you should be able to find similar requests for help and
methods of properly configuring fonts by using the http://www.google.com
search engine. Alternatively try one of the XFree86.org mailing lists for
