I have been trying to get some alternate window managers running on my
MobilePro 780 running NetBSD 3.0, but have not had much success. I
have made packages for matchbox, icewm, pekwm, and windowlab.=20
$/HOME/.xinitrc did not exist, so i created it and I set .xinitrc to
be something like:
Then I try:
But all i get is the blank grey screen with an x-cursor I can move
with the stylus. With matchbox, the cursor switches to the classic
arrow pointer after about 30 seconds.
When I remove $/HOME/.xinitrc, X starts up fine into twm.
Am I missing something?
I'll post a link to the packages I've compiled once I verify that they
actually work :-)
