Wierd Gnome Problem
I just installed Gnome 1.0.1 from the .debs in
on my Slink system. Here's what I have installed:
ii gnome-admin 1.0.1-1 Gnome Admin Utilities (gulp and logview)
ii gnome-bin 1.0.3-1 Miscellaneous binaries used by Gnome
ii gnome-control-c 1.0.1-0.1 The Gnome Control Center
ii gnome-core 1.0.1-0.3 Common files for Gnome core apps and help br
ii gnome-games-loc 1.0.1-4 The locale databasese for the gnome-games pa
ii gnome-mahjongg 1.0.1-4 Classic Chinese Tile Game (from Gnome)
ii gnome-network 1.0.1-1 The gnome network utilities.
ii gnome-panel 1.0.1-0.3 Launch and/or dock Gnome applications
ii gnome-session 1.0.1-0.3 The Gnome Session Manager
ii gnome-utils 1.0.1-0.1 Gnome Utilities (gtt, ghex, gnomecal, and mo
ii libgnome32 1.0.3-1 The Gnome libraries
ii libgnomesupport 1.0.3-1 The Gnome libraries (Support libraries)
ii libgnomeui32 1.0.3-1 The Gnome libraries (User Interface)
ii libobgnome0 1.0.1-0.1 Objective-C - Gnome bindings
I also have all of the GTK and other libs that dselect pulled in when
I installed Gnome.
I'm using WindowMaker 0.52 as my window manager. I added 'exec
gnome-session' to my .xinitrc file and everything seems to start fine,
but when I select anything from the gnome panel, everything just hangs
and I have to killall -9 gnome-session from an xterm.
What's going on here? Am I missing something? Do I need to configure
something before starting Gnome?
