I have installed X.
When I executed "startx" It paused, then booted X, and booted into a
window manager. All OK
Problem 1... I decided to change the window manager to openbox
(apparently related to blackbox?) so I found
/etc/x11/xinit/xinitrc, deleted the window manager & typed in openbox.
Stupid in the extreme, I should have #d it out.... what is the default
window manager for startx ?
Problem 2... openbox does not want to work. X starts & I get a popup "A
required .DLL file LIBX11.DLL was not found" ... mmm .... I went to
windows update, updated my adged 98SE & tried again. Same message. I
tried starting openbox without startx, assumed it would call startx &
maybe be happier, zip, just same message again.
At a guess cygwin is fine, and 98SE is lacking a "DLL?" If this is the
case Its a windows problem and OT. I will go contact some windows gurus
! Before I do that can anyone confirm this is a windows problem ?
No libX11 is an X DLL so that would be Cygwin. See
<http://cygwin.com/packages/> to find which package this is in and
BTW, this is really a question about X on Cygwin so it should go to
cygwin-xfree. I've redirected the conversation there and reset the
reply-to appropriately. Please use that list to follow-up if necessary.
