Fedora 8 Can't start X


Fedora8-i386 . Can't start X .

No EE messages in /var/log/Xorg.0.log .
I log in as root and startx, and X goes to a gray screen with a X (mouse pointer) in center of screen and stops there, if I ctrl-alt-backspace,
it gives me the below error messages:

giving up.
Xinit: no such file or directory (errno 2): Unable to connect to X server.
Xinit: no such process (errno3): Server error

I had box installed and running, updated and installed NX and rebooted
box and then this error happen.
I changed from radeon to vesa driver in xorg.conf, and still same error.

I get the same results as before.
The problem is not in xorg.conf it is in running xinit, please look back at the error message.

After checking /var/log/messages I found this:

Nov 17 13:40:28 tomcat setroubleshoot: #012 SELinux is preventing
the /usr/bin/Xorg from using potentially mislabeled files
(/tmp/.X11-unix).#012 For complete SELinux messages. run sealert -l
c442d710-123e-427c-9705-58b14f69831a

I "disabled" Selinux and X came up.

I really hate to not have selinux checking the system.

Now that I got NX installed what can I do to turn Selinux back on to "enforcing", Since NX put the directory in (/tmp/.X11-unix) how do I get
Selinux to accept this directory.
