Unhappy X-server problem - failed to load gui shell


Hi all,

I get the following problem when i tried startx in command line. I cannot go to the gui shell and stuck with this problem.

(==) Using config file: "/etc/X11/xorg.conf"
(WW) 1810: No matching Device section for instance (BusID PCI:0:2:1) found
Synaptics DeviceInit called
SynapticsCtrl called.
Synaptics DeviceOn called
/usr/bin/gnome-session: error while loading shared libraries: /usr/lib/libfontconfig.so.1: cannot restore segment prot after reloc: Permission denied

waiting for X server to shut down Synaptics DeviceOff called
FreeFontPath: FPE "unix/:7100" refcount is 2, should be 1; fixing.


Please help me as soon as possible, i am going crazy

Heres my Xorg config file
If you open yours vi /etc/X11/xorg.conf
your probably missing some key sections (all above)

check your i suspect most likely
{Device] is completely missing or messed up.

Hi,

The above given is my Xorg.conf file. I cannot figure out the problem. I think my problem is in the section files as given below but i am not sure:

Quote:
Section "Files"

# Multiple FontPath entries are allowed (they are concatenated together)
# By default, a font server independent of the X server is
# used to render fonts.
FontPath "unix/:7100"
EndSection

Section "Module"
Load "dbe"
Load "extmod"
Load "fbdevhw"
Load "glx"
Load "record"
Load "freetype"
Load "type1"
Load "synaptics"
Load "dri"
EndSection
Currently, I am using (GNOME )FC5 , kernel version 2.6.17-1.2187_FC5. [Laptop - Compac Presario V4000 Model].

I would be very grateful, if anyone can figure out the problem.
