My Redhat 8.0 server will not bring up the gui
I have Redhat 8.0 installed and wanted to install the XFree86-Xvfb-4.2.0-72.i386.rpm. In the beginning of the install, it asks (or recommends) you to make a copy of /usr/X11R6. So, I quit out of the install...to make a bkup of X11R6. Instead of copying the directory to tape/cdrom/floppy, I attempted to make a bkup on the actual disk, by using the cp command. All of a sudden, error messages were popping up telling me a fatal error has occured and Gnome is going down. After that (Friday 2nd), I haven't seen Gnome...or any gui for that matter. I am working on the command line. When I have rebooted the server messages such as the following appear:
/sbin/modprobe -s -k scsi_host adapter, errno=0 Loading cpqarray module
Also, when I am logged on the following message appears on occasion:
INIT=id 'X' respawning too fast: disabled for 5 minutes.
Wondering if anyone can provide some insight?
