Xfree takes minutes to start


Hello
I ve got a problem.
When I start Xfree it takes about 3 minutes to go to the windowmanager. At first i thought it hung up, but after a long time it startet finally. So I looked up my Xfree86 log
I ve got a few Errors:

(WW) Open APM failed (/dev/apm_bios) (No such file or directory)

(WW) NVIDIA(0): The user specified HorizSync "30.000-70.000" has been adjusted
(WW) NVIDIA(0): to "30.000-63.000" (the intersection with EDID-specified
(WW) NVIDIA(0): HorizSync "30.000-63.000")
(WW) NVIDIA(0): The user specified VertRefresh "50.000-160.000" has been
(WW) NVIDIA(0): adjusted to "56.000-76.000" (the intersection with
(WW) NVIDIA(0): EDID-specified VertRefresh "56.000-76.000"

(WW) (1280x960,Generic Monitor) mode clock 108MHz exceeds DDC maximum 80MHz
(WW) NVIDIA(0): Not using mode "640x480" (height 960 is larger than
(WW) NVIDIA(0): EDID-specified maximum 768)

But I think this lines are the real problem
Warning: font renderer for ".pcf" already registered at priority 0
Warning: font renderer for ".pcf.Z" already registered at priority 0
Warning: font renderer for ".pcf.gz" already registered at priority 0
Warning: font renderer for ".snf" already registered at priority 0

Warning: font renderer for ".snf.gz" already registered at priority 0
Warning: font renderer for ".bdf" already registered at priority 0
Warning: font renderer for ".bdf.Z" already registered at priority 0
Warning: font renderer for ".bdf.gz" already registered at priority 0
Warning: font renderer for ".pmf" already registered at priority 0
Could not init font path element unix/:7100, removing from list!

Can someone help me?
Thanx

Something is screwy about your fonts. Reconfigure your X server.

dpkg-reconfigure xserver-xfree86

# Configuring X
Linux Hardware Compatibility HOWTO - video cards
The Linux XFree86 HOWTO
Common X configuring tools:
Debian - dpkg-reconfigure xserver-xfree86
You may have these tools:
XF86Setup
XFree86 -configure
Xconfigurator
xf86cfg
xf86config
xconf
If you need the nVidia driver, most likely, you want the Linux IA32 driver
