initscript syntax error keeps gdm from starting
Last modified: 2013-09-02 01:52:54 EDT
On bootup...gdm X.log contains the following error:
Could not init font path element unix/:7100, removing from list!
Fatal server error:
could not open default font 'fixed'
My first thought was is the font server active?
$ /etc/init.d/xfs status
/etc/init.d/xfs: line 71: syntax error near unexpected token `fi'
/etc/init.d/xfs: line 71: ` fi'
The following fixed it:
< if [ "$REGEN_FONTS_DIR" = "yes" -a -x $FC_CACHE ]
> if [ "$REGEN_FONTS_DIR" = "yes" -a -x $FC_CACHE ]; then
I've already fixed that, however it seems the new packages never ended up in
the tree somehow. Investigating...
4.3.0-39 is now in rawhide internally
