X Window Fails to Start


Am running RH 8.0 for my proxy server. I have encountered this problem. Everytime I try to start the X Window the system diplays a message:

"(WW) VESA(0): Failed to setup write-combining range (0xd00b0000, 0x1e40000)"

It all started when the /home directory got full and I had to delete some stuff from user directories.

Someone out there please help for am afraid that I might be forced to format the computer.
