Introduction to Linux - A Hands on Guide
This guide was created as an overview of the Linux Operating System, geared toward new users as an exploration tour and getting started guide, with exercises at the end of each chapter.
For more advanced trainees it can be a desktop reference, and a collection of the base knowledge needed to proceed with system and network administration. This book contains many real life examples derived from the author's experience as a Linux system and network administrator, trainer and consultant. They hope these examples will help you to get a better understanding of the Linux system and that you feel encouraged to try out things on your own.

:-) Got a few minutes to spare... waiting for a number crunching job to finish.
The distro is slackware.
Those (EE) lines are not the one that crashes X, its the fatal error: could not load default font "cursor".
Oops, my bad. Notice that it is not a text font, but a cursor font. I think you need to have a look in XFree86.conf (sorry can't remember the exact name for xfree86) and see if there is anything suspicious.
Perhaps some of the slackers lurking here can be of more help?
Distribution: M$ Windows / Debian / Ubuntu / DSL / many others
Hey! i fixed that error only for it to crash on another error.
The solution was to add a line to /usr/X11R6/lib/X11/fonts/misc/fonts.alias that says
but now theres a new error and i will attach a log
the log did not catch the error

Reason: more info
The same fbdev and xkb errors persist. Perhaps you have old versions installed that are incompatible with the rest of X?
This is really out of my comfort zone... I use distros that resolve these sort of dependency issues for me. I think I probably can't be of much help here.
