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.
