Can't start xfs
Last modified: 2007-04-18 12:30:11 EDT
After recompiling and installation of XFree86 can't start X font server
_FontTransmkdir: Owner of /tmp/.font-unix should be set to root
FontCacheInitialize: hi=1048576, lo=786432, bal=70
xfs error: Element #1 (starting at 0) of font path is bad or has a bad
The font path in config file
# where to look for fonts
catalogue = /usr/X11R6/lib/X11/fonts/misc:unscaled,
all directories exist
mkfontdir in /usr/X11R6/lib/X11/fonts/misc don't make big difference
But when I comment out 75dpi font path everything works fine
Can you check the size of the files in /usr/X11R6/lib/X11/fonts/75dpi/ please ?
It happened to me once that the files were empty after a recompile and
install. Each of these files usually has a size of 3-8 kb.
Sorry, but I already deleted all fonts and font server and reintalled them
It solved the problem.
I installed everything from recompiled rpm's and all fonts now have nonzero size
