hi people i have been using fedora since release and just today a strange thing started happening. My X fails to start on boot (it fails 6 times then says it will wait 2 mins b4 retrying). This is strange because before today it worked fine ... and even now - if i log in as my user (or root) and type startx - X fires up and runs no worries -
EXCEPT!! - every two bloody minutes the X server tries to start itself - even though i am already running it - and then it complains the display is being used and so goes off trying to use DISPLAY:1 which also fails 6 times and then waits 2 mins b4 it all starts all over again ....
as you can probably see - my work is interupted every 2 mins (for approx. 2 mins) while X chucks a spac!
any ideas on how to solve this annoying problem - oh yeah i checked /var/log/XFree* and there are no error messages there :(
