About XFree86 3.2 ...
When you installed XFree 3.2, did you experience any problems with the
xrdb utility not working? When I first tried it, xrdb would exit with a "can't
run '/usr/lib/cpp -Dblablabla' with a whole bunch of '-D' switches following
the 'cpp' part. I checked out my '/usr/lib/cpp', and sure enough it was there
(actually a symlink to /usr/bin/cpp). In fact, I was recompiling something at
the same time, so I know it's gotta be working right.
Specifying a '-nocpp' on the xrdb command line seems to have done the
trick. But I hate doing these sort of kludges ... I really like to know why it
didn't work without the '-nocpp' switch. (Like, perhaps I forgot to install a
package or something like that ... this can only mean trouble later on ...).
Do you have any idea? Or should I just be content with that fix?
