RE: troubleshooting X

> This points to missing fonts, or incorrect font paths.

Good point.  I don't know what font it's trying to use, but I have the default 
install fonts (Vera, Luxi, etc) in /usr/X11R7/lib/X11/fonts/TTF.  This is what 
Xorg.0.log says:

(==) Automatically enabling devices
(==) No FontPath specified.  Using compiled-in default.
(WW) `fonts.dir' not found (or not valid) in "/usr/X11R7/lib/X11/fonts/Speedo/".
        Entry deleted from font path.
        (Run 'mkfontdir' on "/usr/X11R7/lib/X11/fonts/Speedo/").
(WW) `fonts.dir' not found (or not valid) in "/usr/X11R7/lib/X11/fonts/CID/".
        Entry deleted from font path.
        (Run 'mkfontdir' on "/usr/X11R7/lib/X11/fonts/CID/").
(==) FontPath set to:
(==) RgbPath set to "/usr/X11R7/lib/X11/rgb"

The odd thing (to me) is that I thought FontPath would be controlled from 
/etc/fonts/fonts.conf so I added another directory there, but it doesn't show 
up in this log.

And I cannot find the xorg.conf file anywhere.  I have a man page for it though.

I think the problem was that I couldn't create Xorg.0.log.old.  The other 
option would be to make the directory globally writable, I suppose, but IIRC 
the error message mentioned SUID so I did that.
