I did my usual yum update this morning - and xwindows does not work. Traced the problem back to xfs. Config file looks fine, but xfs fails with a list of bad font paths, but the paths look ok. /etc/X11/fs/config file follows:
# xfs font server configuration file
# allow a max of 10 clients to connect to this font server
client-limit = 10
# when a font server reaches its limit, start up a new one
clone-self = on
# alternate font servers for clients to use
#alternate-servers = foo:7101,bar:7102
# where to look for fonts
catalogue = /usr/share/X11/fonts/misc:unscaled,
# in 12 points, decipoints
default-point-size = 120
# 75 x 75 and 100 x 100
default-resolutions = 75,75,100,100
# use lazy loading on 16 bit fonts
deferglyphs = 16
# Log errors via syslog.
use-syslog = on
# For security, don't listen to TCP ports by default.
no-listen = tcp
#### end of config file...
My gut says there is a bug in xfs and that its just broken. Hope I'm wrong and someone has an easy solution!
