RE: Further Information on X problem
Well, I fooled around a little last night. Finally logged in as a user
instead of root, booted X with no problems (well, still the font error, but it
doesn't seem to effect anything). Tracked the problem down to an & after the
window manager call in .xinitrc. Doesn't make much sense to me, as I now have
to call gnome-session by command line instead of having X do it, and I read
that you have to put gnome-session last in your .xinitrc file. Thinking about
it now, I guess that I will just try gnome-session& then call the window
manager, and see what happens. That is just weird to me.
Thanks for the help and suggestions all.
