As a certified linux newbie(idiot) obviously Iím posting a cry for help. After a couple of unsuccessful transitions to linux(using installs as well as live-cdís) I purchased SuSE 10.1 dvd and installed it on two HDD Ėthe first one gave a Grub error after a few restarts but(I think the HDD is dying or the MBR is compromised) but on the second HDD the install was flawless.
After the initial shock to my system (a new and unfamiliar OS), my curiosity got the better of me and I tried to bite more then I can chew. I just couldnít resist the eye-candy- experimental XGL and after installing both the nVidia driver and XGL whilst following step-by-step instruction form Novell.com and a couple of other sites I am unable to get KDE or X windows? To work. If I try to load them I get a specific Fatal Error which basically says that a couple of FontPaths could not be initialized:
Could not init font path element
FontPath "/usr/X11R6/lib/X11/fonts/CID" removing from list
FontPath ď/usr/X11R6/lib/X11/fonts/localĒ removing from list
I did find some answers on the net but none of them seem to fix anything. They even suggested that these files are no longer used so I donít need them but I canít boot up properly anyhow. I am aware that this is a big modification especially for a newbie like me but I really want this thing to work. Currently Iím re-installing SUSE 10.1 and I will try to install the XGL again(at least one more time before I give up
Thank you for any type of help provided
