Last few lines of XFree86.0.log

(II) Loading font Type1
(II) Loading font CID
(II) LoadModule: "nvidia"
(II) Loading /usr/X11R6/lib/modules/drivers/nvidia_drv.o

Kinda makes sense... I see the nvidia flash screen and then all goes to crap, then it tries to to load again, and all goes to crap again.... over and over again...

make sure that your xfs server is running,just type service xfs status,i think maybe something is wrong with your fonts server. and fonts can't be loaded.

from my root account I typed

"service xfs status"

I got back

"xfs dead but pid file exists"

Now what?

type "service xfs restart"
and maybe it will be ok.
if not,look out the log file for xfs and check out what is wrong.

The restart didn't do anything other than say that the shutdown was unsuccessful...

Where can I find this log file? I didn't find anything in /var/log
