font path probs.

Post by Bwana McCal » Mon, 14 Jul 1997 04:00:00

I changed my X server from Mach64 to SVGA.  Now Im getting this error:

failed to set default font path '...<font paths here>...'
Fatal server error:
could not open default font 'fixed'

I've verified all font paths and ran mkfontdir in each as root.  I cant
figure this out.  Any help would be appreciated.

1. Almost working....font path is screwing up in X (path's correct)

Okay, in my neverending saga of trying to get x running with SLS 0.98 using
my SAME clock settings from my old xconfig.....
The sucker is bombing out on my font path, but the font path is correct and
points directly to all the proper fonts.

Fatal server error:  Could not open default font 'fixed'.
(before that, "Failed to set default font path 'usr/X386/lib/X11/fontss......
blah blah.  

I checked the path in the Xconfig with the exact directories where all of
my fonts are (default SLS place), and it all matches up.

Anyone, anyone?
