"x" respawing to fast disabled for 5 minutes
I have been trying to get RH 7.3 to run on an old system. I have tried installing it in every way I can think of and no go. Here's my problem, it comes up to the text log on and thinks for awhile and attempts to start x like it should, screen goes blank and then flashs a message INIT "x" respawning to fast disabling for 5 minutes. I have no idea what that means. If any body has any ideas that could help that would be great.

Your video drivers and/or your XFree86 implementation is not set-up right.

There should be a utility with Red Hat to set your video up from the command line.

to stay in the command line, type;
init 3
after logging on as root.
That way, the respawn message won't repeat.
Look in the docs for Red Hat for their XFree86 setup utility (I use Mandrake and it is XFdrake).

Run the utility and make the correct choices for your system...

You should know the proper video card and monitor selections for your system...
