This is the log file generated	after i give the command startx

Comment 2 Mike Chambers 2003-05-04 16:16:01 UTC
Please make sure xfs is running, via service xfs restart and see if it does
start or gives an error.  If it does start, then try startx and report back.

Comment 3 Need Real Name 2003-05-04 20:53:11 UTC
I did as advised
1. tried restarting xfs it didnt ctrl C was required to return to the shell
2. Xconfigurator ( success) then startx was used but to no avail it didnt work

Comment 4 Mike Chambers 2003-05-04 21:04:49 UTC
If xfs isn't running or won't start, then that is why X Server won't run as
well.    You need to attach your XFree config file and log file.  Mike Harris
will be chiming in here soon, on either ways to troubleshoot this, or if its'
supported, being your using 7.3 and XFree 3 version.

Comment 5 Mike A. Harris 2003-05-04 21:20:25 UTC
This is much more of a tech support request, and much less of a bug report,
as there is no specific "bug" being reported, just some randomish system
problem you're having, which falls under the category of tech support.

Bugzilla isn't a technical support forum, and we don't handle tech support
issues here.  Please use Red Hat and/or XFree86 mailing lists to help you
troubleshoot your system configuration problem.  It is unlikely that it is
caused by a bug at this point, or we would likely have had a great large
number of bug reports from users many months ago when 7.3 was still current.

If there does turn out to be a bug, which is unlikely, upgrade to Red Hat
Linux 9, and if the problem exists still, and you can reproduce it 100%,
and give detailed instructions on how to reproduce, feel free to open a 
new bug report against Red Hat Linux 9.
