Hello list. After years of fearfully shying away from Debian (because of all
the "it's great if you are a guru" type statements), I jumped in with both
feet and have found it the easiest distribution I have tried yet on PowerPC or
Intel. The directory structure seems much cleaner than that installed by
LinuxPPC and a working install with more than I really need takes up far less
disk space. I am incredibly happy with it.
My problem: I had X working, but it was slow. So I spent a couple of days
just hanging out in the console, as that is how I usually work anyways. Then
I had a little free time, so I grabbed the latest Xpmac server from LinuxPPC
(which worked great under LinuxPPC on my PowerBase180), and symlinked X to it.
It worked the first time, then it stopped. When I startx, it grabs the
memory it needs, then prints this error:
PEXExtensionInit: Couldn't open default PEX font file Roman_M
And jumps back to the console. I used dselect to download the fonts which
said were associated with PEX, but the same error comes up. I am really
stumped on this right now. Any help would be much appreciated. I'm thinking
that it may have something to do with the x font server, but I really don't
know enough to figure it out.
