I had RedHat Linux 3.0.3 working just great and I then purchased
the "official" V 4.0 2 CD package and did an upgrade. Now I am running
into the following difficulties does anyone know what the problems
might be? RedHat is apparently so busy that I have yet to
get a response from my last query.
1. Logging in as root I can not start up X; if I log in as a non-root
user X starts up without any problems. When I try to startx
I get the following error:
"/usr/X11R6/bin/init : file or directory not found"
and this error varies if I execute directly in the /usr/X11R6/bin
directory. My PATH does point to this directory. The error messages
are so varied that I can't recall the exact syntax for each error
and I am e-mailing from another machine (see item 3).
2. Emacs takes a very long time to start up.
3. Networking no longer operates. The old networking scripts I had
written (ppp-on,etc.) no longer work as chat seems to be broken.
When I run the script it essentially tells me that the -l option
no longer works. However, the man page for chat says it is there.
Possibly "new" version of chat as compared to man pages. Previously
to test my networking I could use minicom, dial into my gateway
and CTRL + A Q out and issue a pppd command and be connected to
the network. Now the issuing the pppd command doesn't seem to
connect me to the network; it just sits there.
I also tried the Network Configurator and the modem initializes,
dials up the network, I can hear it connecting and then as with
pppd nothing else happens.
