Interesting. The 15:29 checkin by marcus said "The warning about running as root first is no longer needed since the hack seems to work", so I didn't try it again. He was, apparently, wrong. Now, when I start it via sudo (rather than a "su -" and an exporting of the display), it starts up just fine. After a "chown -R" of the .mozilla directory to me, it starts fine as my userid, too. Weirdness. Thanks, everybody, for the replies! I really appreciate it. - Jamie _______________________________________________ [EMAIL PROTECTED] mailing list http://lists.freebsd.org/mailman/listinfo/freebsd-questions To unsubscribe, send any mail to "[EMAIL PROTECTED]"
