(I remembered I've been here before and went back through my mail!) 'startx' still proceeds until it fills all available memory. In particular, 'top' shows the size of 'xclock' growing while other processes seem OK. 1) Where do I go to remove 'xclock' from the list of processes brought up by 'fvwm2'? 2) Does this [mis]behavior sound familiar to anyone? 3) I am still running 4.8-Release installed from CD 1. I have not updated any packages yet. If there are some 'strongly recommended' updates, what would they be? Keep those cards and letters coming! Thanks.
