x11 problem

My Linux box didn't start in gui mode:
When I run startx from the console, I see this part of the message:

(EE) Failed to load module "bitmap" (module does not exist, 0)

Luckily I remember installing an updated (apparently buggy) version of x11-server-common. That was the last stupid thing I did with my box while attempting to install vncserver so that I can work else where in the lab.

I reverted back to the older version using x11-server-common-1.1.1-11.2mdv2007.0.i586.rpm with --nodeps and --force options in addition to the usual -Uvih option of rpm.

Back to thesis work...
