Re: shadow question
It sounds like there is a problem with your .xsession script (if you
have one), or the file /etc/X11/window-managers. If you have a
.xsession script, everything should be started in the background,
except for the last thing (usually the window manager, could be an
xterm, though). If not, make sure that at least one of the window
managers listed in /etc/X11/window-managers exists.
