Description klw 1999-08-15 23:44:32 UTC
I have recently installed a new RH6.0 from a cd onto my system. I applied all of the Red Hat Linux 6.0 General Errata including the kernel upgrade to 2.2.5-22. I also upgraded to XFree86 3.3.4 to support my i740 based video card. Everything was working fine. Then i followed the instructions from http://www.redhat.com/corp/support/docs/kernel-2.2/kernel2.2-upgrade.html to upgrade my kernel to the latest 2.2.11 after following that process during bootup with the new kernel the font server hung. I tried booting back in with my 2.2.5-22 kernel still hung on the font server I had to reboot in single user mode and disable it in rc3.d, after that everything was fine with the new kernel. I tried re-running Xconfigurator and re-intalling XFree86 3.3.4. It still hangs if i enable the font server. What is going on? And how do i fix it?

When you installed XFree86 3.3.4 you overwrote our own xfs, which is specially modified. You'll need to grab the xfs from our own packages to have it work correctly with our /etc/rc.d/init.d/xfs startup script, or manually put xfs into the background (&) in that script by editing it -- we modified xfs to be a daemon, and the standard xfs is simply a program.
