Can anyone educate me on what stupid thing I am
I last rebuilt my wife's system back at the end of
December. I just moved her onto a new system, but
dump/restored her old system onto the new one.
When she tries to start firefox, it just sits there.
If I look using top, it it there, but the time used
slowly drops and then the box becomes idle.
I figured maybe something about the faster/newer
CPU etc so I rebuilt everything from -current.
No change. It sits in a state called "parked" under
top and nothing ever comes up.
Other X applications come up as expected.
I have no trouble on my system (different hardware
and a few weeks old copy of -current) with firefox.
Anything obvious I've missed?
