X error : respawning too fast


redhat - 9.

1. i am getting the error
INIT : id "x" respawning too fast: disabled for 5 minutes
yesterday, everything was fine. u guessed right. either /etc/inittab or /etc/X11/XF86config . but noway, i didn't change anything in these 2 files. i am now fine on init 3. when i run init 5, the above error is coming. i am not sure what went wrong. actually, i was upgrading php yesterday. ./configure on php gave one error of libxml2 upgradation. i upgraded libxml2 & php also installed fine. now, when i used
# redhat-config-xfree86, the following error appeared.
redhat-config-xfree86: error while loading shared libraries: libxml2.so.2:cannot open shared object file: no such file or directory
So, i hope something went wrong while installing libxml2. how should i proceed now ????

any x errors should also be logged somewhere in /var/log.
maybe /var/log/XF86.0.log - something like that

At a guess, during your upgrade you lost the link between libxml2.so.2 and whatever it was meant to be pinting to, most likely libxml2.so, look in the lib directory where libxml2.so.2 exists and see if its still pointing at something that exists.

Well try:
Code:
ls -l /usr/lib/libxml2.so*
to see if it's available and if that's or not a broken link
