I am running mandrake linux 10.1 on a system I setup about 1 month ago.
I have not had any problem on the system until today when the
X server suddenly crashed. When I tried to restart it, it failed with
Could not init font element unix/:-1, removing from list!
Fatal server error: could not open default font 'fixed'.
I rebooted, got the same message. I ran the font server in the foreground,
not as a daemon, so I could see it's output. At start up it said:
_FontTransSocketUNIXCreateListener: mkdir(/tmp/.font-unix) failed, errno = 13
_FontTransMakeAllCOTSServerListeners: failed to create listener for local
13 is permission denied, but why would it get this on /tmp, which is world writable:
# ls -la /tmp
drwxrwxrwt 3 root root 4096 Jul 27 11:04 ./
drwx------ 19 root root 4096 Jul 26 15:01 ../
drwxrwxrwt 2 root root 4096 Jul 27 11:00 .X11-unix/
Anyone have any clues?
