[RndTbl] X10: fatal IO error 104

Everything was running just fine. 
Red Hat 7.2 had even found my modem and
I learning how to use Glame.
Then, because I was in a hurry, I did
a shutdown inside an xterm window in
KDE 2.2.1. Latter when I booted back up,
and did startx, it failed with this
error message:
  Could not init font path element
  unix/:700, removing from list!
Fatal server error:
 Could not open default font 'fixed'
X10: fatal IO error 104
(Correction reset by peer) on X server ":0.0"
after 0 requests ( 0 known processed )
with 0 events remaining
    Looks bad. And it got worse when I did
several xf86config and X still gives the
same error.
    When I do a shutdown  xfs gives an error.
I've got no idea what to do. So I sent a bug
report to xfree86 at xfree86.org
I doubt I'll ever hear from them.
  Has this happened to anyone else? Is there
a solution or will I have to re-install Red Hat?
