I had it running under Slink but after upgrading some to some Potato
packages it broke and I never got it going again.  I also get a
segmentation fault.  I began to accept that it will never run under Potato.

A few questions:

1. Which kernel do you use? When I install WP8 on my system it
complains about the kernel (2.1.14) not being certified.

2. Which window manager do you use?

I can succesfully instal WP8.  The GUI installation screen seems to
work without a problem but as soon as I try to run it, I get a
segmentation fault.
