What should I be looking for in order to get DOSx (DOSEMU) to find font
'vga'?

Thanks!

Jon

Usually this happens vhen you reinstall X AFTER DOSEMU.
To make DOSEMU find vga.pcf, go to the path where vga.pcf is (usually
/usr/X11R6/lib/X11/fonts/misc) and issue the command:
mkfontdir
This rebuilds the file fonts.dir, including vga.pcf

then restart X, or issue the commnand:

xset fp rehash

thanks bruno
but I just tried it and in my case it didnot help.

I use rh6.0 with a 2.2.9 kernel.
dos[emu] exits with:
ERROR: X: Unable to open font "vga"ERROR: , trying "vga"...
ERROR: X: Unable to open font "vga"ERROR: , trying "9x15"...

any hints?

Have you tried xdos (which is another means of invoking dosemu)? It
works for me, whereas (if I remember correctly) the other two didn't.

1. X won't start "could not find font 'fixed'"

Hello,

I just reinstalled Solaris 8 on a new Blade 100.  When the system boots
I get an error that it can't connect to display:0, and X won't start.  

When I try to run xinit at the command line I get and fatal server error
that the font 'fixed' could not be found.  All of the fontpaths appear
to be setup correctly.

Also, when I try to start xfs at the command line I get another fatal
error saying that No listening sockets established, ListenTransCount=0
errno=125.  fsadmin tells me that xfs is set to startup from inetd...

Does anyone have suggestions on how to fix this?  I'm starting to rip my
hair out...

Thanks,

Adhamh Findlay
