XFS related problems have cropped up over the last few months but I have
not been able to find what I was looking for in the archives so sorry if
anyone is getting bored with the subject. The story is I had rh6.0
installed on a machine -- working grand except for the very odd x crash
which happened every few weeks which I just blamed on the old version of
enlightenment I was running-- Last week I upgraded it to 6.1. This too
worked grand for a few days. It was only yesterday that I noticed X had
died. On a complete restart of x I get:
failed to set font path 'unix/:1'
fatal server error
could not open default font 'fixed'
hmmm......xfs seems to be unok.
When I removed the lock file (/var/lock/subsys/xfs) and restarted xfs by
:> /etc/rc.d/init.d/xfs start
:> /etc/rc.d/init.d/xfs status
xfs dead but subsys locked
Any suggestions please? I didn't change anything kernel or module wise.
BTW. Some of you might remember that I had problems with a 2.0.38 kernel
which used to reboot the machine every time when it reached the PCI
Bios. Thanks to those who offered suggestions. After a week we finally
found that half the problem was a PCI transputer we had on the board had
died horribly! Everything working sweetly now again with a new board.
