Fail to start xfce4
 
Hi folks,

CentOS 4.4 amd5

I'm installing this box as server therefore only limited packages of X and Xfce 4.2 installed without groupinstalling 'X Window System'

On starting Xfce4

$ startxfce4
Code:

....
Fatal server error:
could not open default font 'fixed'
.....
XIO: fatal IO error 104 (Connection reset by peer) on X server ":0.0"
      after 0 requests (0 known processed) wih 0 events remaining.

$ cat /etc/X11/xorg.conf
Code:

...
# the X server to render fonts.

  RgbPath  "/usr/X11R6/lib/X11/rgb"
  FontPath  "unix/:7100"

....

# find / -name fonts -type d
Code:

/usr/X11R6/lib/X11/fonts
/usr/X11R6/lib64/modules/fonts
/usr/share/orgonkify/fonts
etc.

Whether I need to list all font paths on xorg.conf? Any other additional packages I need to install? TIA

Tks for your URL. After download/installing nvidia driver on nvidia.com, Xfce4 can be started.

Test performed as follows;

# /etc/init.d/xfs restart

# /usr/sbin/chkfontpath

I can't find the RgbPath;

No printout

The "RgbPath "/usr/X11R6/lib/X11/rgb"" was created automatically at start/during installation.
