Default Re: FC4 2.6.14 issue with startx failing

I am going to try and scp it from my laptop (windows) to my linux box when I get home. I did a init 6, thinking "what the hell" and my system no longer lets me in.... so now I am here beeting my head against my cubicle wall yelling "what the hell?!?!?!" lol So when I get home... I will reboot and try again. I think a few of these issues are due to run levels. I will just let the box boot up normaly and then try again. Thanks for all the help!

-Danny

p.s. this is one of the reasons that i love linux. we all help each other out. Linux is definately a COMMUNITY!

try "df" and make sure you have a decent size of free disk space left on you root partition, I have seen this occur before because of this.

I dont think you have a problem with the drivers though otherwise you would never get the graphical login.
