Re: deleted /tmp ruined X, how to recover?
Bryan, thanks a lot for reply.
I tried to set the permission to the new /tmp to 777. startx as root,
still get the same result. the error msg are as followed:
_Font TransSocketUNIXConnect - can't connect:error=111
failed to set default path 'unix/:-1'
Fatal server error
could not open default font 'fixed'
I also install the font server but still the same. What can I do still?
