"Could not init font path element""Unix /: 7100 removing from list/


Hi, Everybody

Sub: Error.. I got during Restart Linux System is " [drm-i830-wait-ring] *Error*Lookup"


What happened is I changed my IP Address and then restart my RHL System... here i got problem [drm-i830-wait-ring] *Error*Lookup"... I am not able to understand what is this and one more thing is at time of starting it said that "found one more Canna server" and run this command "rm/rmp/iroha_Unix/IROHIA" it doesn’t give me a much amount of time to login in Text based mode and it gives continuously error message" [drm-i830-wait-ring] *Error*Lookup"


anywhere I manage to login as i had one user account with a short name but I didn't run the "startx command" successfully... whenever I am trying to run this command it gives me an error message like

"Could not init font path element"
"Unix /: 7100 removing from list/Fatal IO Error (connection reset by peer"
"On X Server ":0.0"after 0 requests..

Could any body found this problem/bug then Plz, send me feedback......

Could not init font path element" "Unix /: 710

I have the same problem. The posted answer "you don't have a font server installed" is informative. The next question is "how does one install a font server. From the install 3.0 Rel 2 cdrom, I mean, because that is all I have. There is no internet attached to my intended Debian machine.

BTW: I believe I selected "All Packages" during my install today so I am a little disappointed that everything needed was not installed.

#apt-get install xfs-xtt

if you need to download it:
http://packages.debian.org/testing/x11/xfs-xtt

change the
" FontPath "unix/:7100" # local font server"
line in
/etc/X11/XF86Config-4
to
" FontPath "unix/:7110" # local font server"

start the xfs-xtt font server with /etc/init.d/xfs-xtt

what is mine's a redhat9?
I've never encountered something like this before, why does this problem happen anyway?

I type "startx" or "gdm" it shows the following:
1. Fail to initialize GXL extension (NVIDIA X driver not found)
2. Could not init font path element unix/:7100, remove from list.
3. Fatal server error: could not open default font ‘fixed’

Show us your /etc/X11/xorg.conf .

Sorry for refloating this thread, but I think I've got the answer for this type of questions: You've run out of disk space in the root partition. As the line in XF86config says, it's making use of Unix sockets, not TCP, and Unix sockets do make use of disk space for working. You may have a complete, pristine installation of xfs (X font server) and not getting it to work because of the lack of disk space for sockets to create.

Hope it's of any use now.
