That looks similar to my recent X problem. I had just
installed debian slink on my sparc. When I tried to run
xdm, I got the PEX fonts error, plus it said it could not
find a screen or a screen resource or something. When I
rebooted (for another reason) the xdm login screen came up.
I don't know what the problem was, but maybe rebooting is
