Waiting for Server to shut down error?

Waiting for Server to shut down error?

Post by Dean » Sun, 26 Jan 1997 04:00:00

 I have just completed installing Redhat 4.0 Linux. I moved on to
configure X-windows...great no problems.
Then I "startx" and it reads my config fine,.... then spits the dummy
with the error "Waiting for Server to shut down".



1. XFree86 Fatal Error :waiting for server to shut down FreeFontPath

Hi all,
I have read some posts about the following bug and as yet have not read
any solutions. I am running the latest unstable distribution of debian
and XFree86, and get this error when trying to run 'startx':

waiting for server to shut down FreeFontPath: FPE
"/usr/X11R6/lib/X11/fonts/misc:unscaled" refcount is 2, should be 1;

I see the X screen briefly, then it returns to terminal mode displaying
this message and a blinking cursor (ready for entry).

This is frustrating as I cannot get into X!.

I have downloaded all the font packages and used apt-get to install

Any help would be greatly appreciated.
