    Hi,

    I prayed to God thousand times b4 installing RH9 that xserver prob shud not rise. but it happened. After installing, RH9, and reboot..everything worked properly then the next day when I entered, it says XServer cannot be started
    and two modules namly bitmap, pcidata are not found. So, the OS will stay in text mode.

    The modules are in /usr/X11R6/lib i think so.. when i tried opening that directory it says I/O error. Same problem is faced by many of them I think so (found when googled) but none of them have told the solution

    Plsease help me. I googled for the same problem and found nothing useful.

    thank u very much.

    ok..i somehow found it myself...

    just reinstall the xserver -- this is what i found in a forum.

    typed in the command prompt rpm -ivf -force xi386.rpm(something like) filename forgot.

    That;s it. Now my Pc boots in GUI mode too.

    upto this it is good.

    but a new problem, whatever I type like 'root' or my login account name. It says incorrect username or caps lock. guys pls help on this probs. i googled exhaustively and found fruitless.

    Pls Pls help me.
