  Starting X Font Server: xfs nice: xfs: No such file or

Comment 1 Preston Brown 2000-02-03 16:43:59 EST
ah, yes.  We don't support using xfs as the system font server via this init.d
script on 5.2, it is an artifact of the backport of the 6.x packages.  This
probably won't get fixed anytime soon, if ever.
