I got an fatal error. X11 folder seems to be corrupt somehow. What should I do now?


- When I start Linux (IT Linux 2002, Red Hat), output is [Ok], [Ok], ... but then: xfs [Failed] can't open configuration file "usr/X11R6/lib/X11/fs/config"

- I checked the folder, and there is error:
- ls /usr/X11R6/lib -> listing shows also X11
- [b]ls /usr/X11R6/lib/X11 -> Error message: Input/output error[/b]

When I start Linux, it also gives:
- Starting sendmail: make: Entering '/etc/mail'
make: ***warning: File 'virtusertable.db' has modification time in the future (2005-09-25 15:28:18 > 2005-09-25 13:42:17)
make: warning: Clock skew detected. Your build may be incomplete.
make: leaving directory '/etc/mail' [ok]
- xfs error: fatal: couldn't read config file [Failed]
- Starting Wine: [Failed]

I tried to check disk, it looked clean:
- umount /dev/hda2
- fsck /dev/hda2 : version ....
: clean, ... files ... blocks
- mount /dev/hda2
: already mounted or / busy
: according to mtab dev/root is already mounted on /

Log /var/log/XFree86.0.log has the following:
- ...
- Couldn't open RGB_DB '/usr/X11R6/lib/X11/rgb'
- PEXExtensionInit: Couldn't open default PEX font file Roman_M
- ...
- Couldn't load XKB keymap, falling back to pre-XKB keymap
- Could not init font path element unix/:7100, removing from list

startx outputs still error messages and also this message:
- Fatal Server Error: could not open default font 'fixed'

So X is not working. Should I install Linux again and format /-partition?
Or should I ask X11-folder with contents from somebody?

Best Regards
