Description Dave Airlie 2004-08-24 19:32:22 UTC
I've gotten a CVS build from about a week ago running on an FC2 system, 

for some reason the xfs doesn't startup properly, I have it starting using the
FC2 startup script so it gets -daemon -droppriv however I get the following error:

_FontTransmkdir: ERROR: euid != 0,directory /tmp/.font-unix will not be
created._FontTransSocketUNIXCreateListener: mkdir(/tmp/.font-unix) failed, errno = 2
_FontTransMakeAllCOTSServerListeners: failed to create listener for local

The FC2 startup script seems to rm -rf /tmp/.font-unix at startup ... so it
won't re-create it with dropped priv....
