X (startx) does not start. Falls back with "Cannot open font fixed".
With Xconfigurator, the Gnome-test-image is visible, though.

Just at reboot after installation, which went smoothly. Install-logon-
startx brings up this problem

RAWHIDE means resolved by latest update; if I am correct.
I have used the latest iso's ("Roswell 2", dated 18-08-2001). Are there any 
more recent iso's? If not, should the bug not be reopened?

Comment 2 Mike A. Harris 2001-09-05 06:49:40 UTC
No.  Rawhide is rawhide.  Bug is a done deal.  Roswell2 is not the latest.
Roswell2 is the latest CDROM beta.  Rawhide is the latest developmental
packages.
