Everything works pretty good now, I had to reinstall the dev/ dir from rpm, but the X Server won't start.
It seems to me that it is a xfs problem:
xfs: xfs startup succeeded
xfs: cannot establish any listening sockets
xfs: ignoring font path element /usr/X11R6/lib/X11/fonts/cyrillic
when starting the X, the screen becomes black for some while and then the server crashes with the error:
Fata server error:
could not open defaul font 'fixed'
Could it be that thing with the "listening sockets"?
What am I missing?
Any pointers appreciated...
check your configuration file in /etc/X11/fs/config
(also check the server settings)
see man xfs for details
Note that this file should be symlinked to
coz the xfs service uses that config file.
