Here's a link to a newsgroup with some help for an older version of RedHat, but may help:
Here's some of the thread:
X 4.0 has a build-in font server, so i don't think thats the problem
Yes, X does have a builtin font server. However, if XF86Config has
errant font paths specified, you can expect this message when running
Look in XF86Config for a font path which doesn't exist. For example,
if you are running xfs then you should have something like:
...depending on what port you assigned to xfs when it was started.
Alternatively, if you have the above line specified but xfs is not
running, you will get the same error message.
Check /etc/X11/fs/config to make sure that the font paths specified
for xfs actually exist, too.
Lastly, if you are running xfs in conjunction with some other font
server, such as xfstt, make sure you have added the appropriate
line for that font server to XF8Config, such as:
As a sanity test, you can comment all TCP font paths and hard
code absolute paths in the old manner, like:
That should always work, assuming the typing was correct and
the fonts are really there. From that point you can troubleshoot
xfs if need be.
Best of luck,
