xwin sudden failure
After several months of running my laptop on a fixed network connection with Fedora C2, I have been travelling a while and have run it offline (with no problem). However, upon my return home it will not boot into xwindows and instead comes up with the seemingly common:
INIT: Id "x" respawning too fast, disabled for 5 minutes
If I try to use startx as user I get:
Fatal server error, cannot move
/var/log/Xorg.0.log to /var/log/Xorg.0.log.old
and then a couple of other messages saying cannot find file before it gives up and returns me to the promt.
If I do this as root, I get into a desktop, but not everything functions - and more importantly I cannot run all the things I had set as user..
I have changed nothing in the core nor installed any additional software over this time
Is there anyone out there who can tell me what has gone wrong and how I may fix it? I am trying to be a devoted new linux user but am frustrated by the down-time I have getting things working...
All the best
