X11R6 package in Debian 1.2 bugs (?)
I installed X windows package from Debian 1.2 (ftp'd from
uiarchive.cso.uiuc.edu, one of the mirror sites), here are some strange
things I noticed, I wonder if anyone else has it:
(1). rxvt doesn't work properly: backspace doesn't work, it types ~
instead. I can't set it by "stty erase" either. (xterm works fine).
(2). tcsh doesn't work properly: I can't ftp into my computer from
another computer if my shell is tcsh (as specified in /etc/passwd). It
gives me "user access denied".
However, if I say csh in /etc/passwd, ftp works fine, even though the
shell is still tcsh (I didn't install csh, so csh defaults to tcsh, I
guess). Very strange.
(3). I use "startx" to start X windows, there is the message "PEX fonts
not loaded", and "XIE fonts not loaded". I did install "xfntspex"
package. And what is "XIE"? I use fvwm manager.
PS. I'm still trying to figure out how to make automounter to work, I
installed it, but no luck. Any help?
