    Default Failed to start the X server (your graphical user interface)

    I know that this problem was discussed in more than one forums, but I could not find what should I do with my case

    Running FC7. I installed several packages (I do not remember what are they) last night. Today, when I booted up the computer, I got this message:

    Failed to start the X server (your graphical user interface). It is likely that it is not set up correctly. Would you like to view the X server output to diagnose the problem.
    I tried Ctrl-Alt-F1 where I get the X server failure and go to a command line.
    1- cat /var/log/Xorg.0.log | grep EE
    Code:
    (WW) warning , (EE) Error, (NI) Not Implemented, (?) unknown, (EE) unable to locate /open config file
     
    (II) Loading Extension MIT-SCRENN-SAVER
    (EE) Failed to load module vga (module does not exist, 0)
    (EE) open /dev/fb0: No Such file or directory
    (EE)<default pointer>: Cannot find which  device to use.
    (EE)xf860OpenSerial : No Device specified
    (EE)<default pointer>: cannot open input device
    (EE) PreInit failed for Input device <default pointer>
    2- Then I run : Xorg -configure
    Code:
    Xorg is not able to detect your mouse. Edit the file and correct the Devices.
    Your xorg.conf file is /root/xorg.conf.new.
    To test the server, run 'X -config /root/xorg.conf.new
    3- Then I run Xorg -config /root/xorg.conf.new
    Code:
    Fatal sever error:
    failed to initialize core devices
    4- Then I run system-config-display --reconfig
    The output was :
    Code:
    xconf.py: Fatal 10 error 104 (Connection reset by peer) on X server:17.0.
    --display=:1: Fatal 10 error 104 (Connection reset by peer) on X server:17.0.xconfig.py
