control-alt-backspace and control-alt-fx (x=1..6) are your
friends. The backspace sequence kills the X server (but will restart
if you're booting directly into X), and the other 6 will give you

What a shock. xfs isn't starting up...

...which is what the above line means. So you have no fonts available

Adjust the paths to match your system (as necessary).

figure out why it is failing. Take a look at the /etc/rc.d/init.d/xfs
startup script to see how your distro is starting xfs.
