I've done a full system upgrade, and xorg and emacs were upgraded to their latest version in the package repository. When I tried to start emacs afterwards, X crashed. I've edited my .emacs as the crash was apparently caused by the fact that I use "monotype-courier new" as my default font. Has anyone encountered a similer crash? I have no idea why this happens..
If the xorg.conf file got changed and the font path was no longer available then this might explain it - I've seen similar things on an Ubuntu box using the X Font server, but never on Arch.
I tend to use emacs from cvs rather than the arch version though...

I have this crash with the CVS version as well. I'll look into the xorg.conf file, but I don't believe this has changed.
I can select the monotype courier-new font in xfontsel by the way, so I guess that already rules out the possibility of a missing font path?
Regards, and thanks for the answer!
