Hi There. I've tried the method earlier by logging as root user and type startx but it return an error screen something like below:

Fatal server error:
could not open default font 'fixed'......

XIO: fatal IO error 104 (connection reset by peer) on X server ":0.0" after 0 requests .....

XFree86 problem
« Reply #4 on: August 29, 2004, 08:17:51 PM »
hi,

do not reinstall rh9.

try this

first login as root
remove the file  or better rename the file XFree86 in directory /etc/X11
(this is for backup but since your XFree86 file is already giving u problems you can surely remove it)

then type redhat-config-xfree86

now select your monitor and display card here.

i hope this solves your problem.

Thanks for the feedback guys. Unfortunely, I gave up trying to fix the probelm of mine. Just takes too much of my time. I've already re-installed it.

By the way, the problem first occured when X is down and the system ask me try to trouble-shoot the problem. I did twice using the x configuration but it didn't work out so i just declined the system to fix the problem. And walla, this is how i got into this mess.

Assuming X is currently running, you can restart X-windows by issuing the following command in shell as root:

killall -HUP X

If ur X server is down, u should have deleted all ur corrupted x files,
let's say ur gnome crashed, what  u need to do is go to ur account's home directory:

cd /home/john          (John is the user let say)

The all u need to do is delete all the directories as mentioned below:
.gconf
.gconfd
.gnome
.gnome_private
.gnome2
.gnome2_private
.gnome-deesktop

i.e.  
[root@diskless richard]rm -fr .gconf

And restart ur box (just to make sure). And it will recreate all the deleted directories.
And u r done :)

If i doesn't work?
Well, don't login using Gnome, use KDE instead. Until now i use KDE i havent gimme a headache. It's pretty good to use. :)

Seems like my problem come back.. with a vengence.. after 3 weeks of smooth operation, today my linux box is being strucked by similiar problem once more.

The initialize of the system went smooth until the boot up of my xserver start causing trouble at the user login (text command). My screen kept on black out and show up repeatly. I can't login due to this ...Anyone got any idea whats going on?

It's ur video card driver problem. What video card u used? Maybe consider getting the latest driver?

Worst still, u will need to compile ur kernel. :(
