To: Jim Cornette,
Thanks, your suggestion to use rpm to restore old packages worked fine. After the xorg-x11*.FC4.48.1 update caused the xserver to fail to init :0. my console access was unavailable. Fortunately, I get into the linux box from either my laptop or Windows box via telnet or VNC viewer. The linux box’s vncserver display on :1 was working fine. Following reading your reply. I accessed a Fedora mirror site and downloaded all the rpms for xorg-x11*.FC4.45 and used your suggestion of rpm –Uvh with the –oldpackages option. Xserver :0 now work fines again.
Thanks for helping the rest of us learn.
