X Problems...


I'm just wondering wether anybody would have any ideas as to what's going on here, I'm running SuSE 8.0,and using the YaST online update I updated all my security patches. The problem seems to be with my the patches for my graphics card, the NVIDIA_GLX-4 and NVIDIA_kernel-4 patches which I installed last night. When I started the installation a message popped up
telling me to reboot the system after the patches were installed, which I did, but when it restarted X wasn't working....

I'm not entirely comfortable with the console yet, as there are a lot of things that I can only do using the GUI, so I was wondering what I could do to put it right....

This is what it says in the XFree86.0.log....

XFree86 Version 4.2.0 / X Window System

(protocol Version 11, revision 0, vendor release 6600)

Release Date: 23 January 2002

If the server is older than 6-12 months, or if your card is

newer than the above date, look for a newer version before

reporting problems. (See http://www.XFree86.Org/)

(**) ModulePath set to "/usr/X11R6/lib/modules"

(**) Option "AllowMouseOpenFail"

(**) Option "Xinerama" "off"

(--) using VT number 7



The problem seems to be with the fact that the directories needed didn't exist, but as it says that the entries have been deleted from the font path and that a new path has been set, then I'm guessing that it would be too late to just create those directories, so what should I do. I have only just just formatted my drive and reinstalled Linux because of a problem that I didn't know how to sort out, and I really don't want to have to do it
again..


Thanks................John............

by the way, those removing fonts from path messages
are normal.
you can also run yast from the command line, i think
