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


B.R.

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

Test performed as follows;

# /etc/init.d/xfs status
Code:
xfs (pid 4708) is running...
# /etc/init.d/xfs restart
Code:
Restarting xfs:
Shutting down xfs:                                         [  OK  ]
Starting xfs:                                              [  OK  ]

I can't find the RgbPath;

No printout

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