I keep getting this error on running startex. I know it has to do with
the compressed fonts in the font directories. The x server dies at that
Fatal server error:
could not open default font 'fixed'
_X11TransSocketUNIXConnect: Can't connect: errno = 111
xinit: Connection refused (errno 111): unable to connect to X server
xinit: No such process (errno 3): Server error.
There is an FAQ somewhere on this, but I can't find it at all. The fix
has to do with a configuration setting or a update, (something to do
with old fonts) but I can't remember anything beyond that.
Running RH 5.1, out of the box.
