Description James Laska 2003-10-15 08:55:32 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
