We had a similar experience and for this reason patched the kernel, using instructions found here: http://lists.freebsd.org/pipermail/freebsd-jail/2008-March/000217.html Then have set up a jail with an updated kde-4 installed there. Every once in a while, we copy over the home dirs and run the jailed version, so that configs on the host system are untouched, but we still get a full experience test. > Also, to start you need to give an explicit path, something like > /usr/local/kde-4/bin/startkde in the .xinitrc file.

Lastly another annoyance is having to click the app menu for it to move to the next category, but I'm sure that's configurable somewhere (I hope). -- Mel Problem with today's modular software: they start with the modules and never get to the software part. _______________________________________________ email@example.com mailing list http://lists.freebsd.org/mailman/listinfo/freebsd-questions To unsubscribe, send any mail to "[EMAIL PROTECTED]"
