Question Problems starting X


Hi
For no apparent reason my X server has failed to start after a reboot?
The error message is :-

Could not init font path element unix/:7100 Removing from list!

Could not open default font 'fixed'

Any idea's how I can fix this?
I am running Fedora core 1

No nothing at all. I was messing about with a Unreal Tournament server, shutdown the system for the night. Problem started when I restarted the machine?
How can i check/fix the font server?

Ok thanks for that link. I tried several of the fixes mentioned. I think that the disk space issue was probably what broke the font server? I uncommented the line relating to the default font path and X booted ok.
