Thumbs down Bizarre XF86Config problem...


Well, I've got a fresh install here on an old Toshiba Satellite Pro 425CDS. 100mhz Pentium, 48 mb Ram, 1 gig hard drive.

Vectorlinux 3.2 (slack based)
XFree86 3.3.6


I get a bizarre error from the xserver trying to start her up.

code:

XF86Config: /etc/XF86Config
(**) stands for supplied, (--) stands for probed/default values

Config Error: /etc/XF86Config:2

Section "Files"
^^

File section keyword expected
XIO: fatal IO error 104 (Connection reset by peer) on X server ":0.0"
after 0 requests (0 known processed) with 0 events remaining.

/endcode

so I go and check the syntax, check my font paths, and everything is good to go...

Hopefully someone can help.

Here's that section of the XF86Config file

Section "Files"

RgbPath "/usr/X11R6/lib/X11/rgb"
FontPath "/usr/X11R6/lib/X11/fonts/local/"
FontPath "/usr/X11R6/lib/X11/fonts/misc/"
FontPath "/usr/X11R6/lib/X11/fonts/75dpi/:unscaled"
# FontPath "/usr/X11R6/lib/X11/fonts/100dpi/:unscaled"
FontPath "/usr/X11R6/lib/X11/fonts/Type1/"
FontPath "/usr/X11R6/lib/X11/fonts/Speedo/"
FontPath "/usr/X11R6/lib/X11/fonts/75dpi/"
# FontPath "/usr/X11R6/lib/X11/fonts/100dpi/"

EndSection

Thanks all :\ I'll let you know if i get this figured out.

Update:

Problem solved in an equally bizarre manner.

Through sheer luck, I found the problem while pulling my hair out editing the file in MC.
Turns out there was some kind of "invisible" break after every line, I had to hit delete twice at the end of every line to delete the last character. I took off that last invisible character off of each line and the problem was gone.

Hoorah.
another hurdle jumped.

ps- anyone ever seen that before? I downloaded the file off the net
