Subject description: Turns out that it is a pango issue
 

On the "experiment" computer I had to do a reboot at one point and couldn't get x back up for anything. Changed monitors and video cards and was able to get x back but only with xvesa.

I'm using xfce4, NOP 431, which is beautiful peace of work.

But for some reason this combination with xvesa I got only squares, no fonts...any suggestions? Confused

This seems to be a pango issue, which I did recently install from source...

Here is one idea.

Here is another.

I am going to give this a shot then post back. Cool

Okay...figured it out.

So, if you install pango and run into this problem, I looked at those links I posted on the last post, and then did this:
Code:

mv -v /etc/pango/pango.modules{,_old}
pango-querymodules > /etc/pango/pango.modules


Then rebooted and all my fonts were back. Cool
