When I booted my Redhat 9.0, there was no failed
indication during the boot process but when it tried
to load the X Window server immediately thereafter, it
couldn't get through the GUI login prompt but returned
an error that X server couldn't be started. The
system prompted to load a fresh configuration but it
was still unsuccessful. Then it prompted to disable
the X server and I was able to gain access through the
console. When I type in startx or X, there was an
error and the ff. log found in /var/log/XFree86.0.log

I already tried configuring the X server using the ff.
-XF86Setup (couldn't be found)
-XFree86 -configure (returns an error same as above)
-Xconfigurator (couldn't be found)
-xf86cfg (couldn't be found)
-xf86config (couldn't be found)
-xconf (couldn't be found)
I have also searched available solutions through
google but I couldn't find any viable solutions.
If you happen to know the workaround for this problem
without doing a re-install, pls. let me know. I am
still a Linux newbie but I found it interesting and
would explore it further to build know-how.
