Time Event
odd GTK(?) problem
I recently used swaret to upgrade to Slackware 10. Everything is fine, with the exception of certain GTK applications (namely, GTK-Gnutella and Sylpheed-Claws). In these applications, odd blue lines show up between content in some windows - for example, the list of items being downloaded in GTK-Gnutella has lines separating each item, and the list of folders in Sylpheed has the same thing. I've uninstalled and reinstalled GTK+ and the like, checked dependencies, etc., but everything appears to be fine. What could be causing this?
Sigh.. I'm so tired.. I installed SuSE 9.1 today. Went fine, then I switched the monitor. Then all hell broke loose it seems. Installed it again, just went through everything, and when it booted, it just sits at the logon.. like on the start up screen where it shows all the stuff loading. Everything loads fine, but it won't boot to the GUI.. Just says:

Welcome to SuSE 9.1 ... ect..

linux logon:

I can long in as root.. but I have no idea how to get it to start into the GUI.. Why doesn't it just boot to that? I told it to in the set up..

It also just let me logon as my user which is scruffy then it shows this:


With the cursor flashing.. any way I can just get it to boot into the GUI of the system.. ?

More GMail Invites...
Well, I'm out of 'friends' that want them, but I still have 9 or so. If you want one, go ahead and leave your e-mail. I figure there are people here that can make good use of 1 GB of space. It fills up pretty quick when you subscribe to linux-kernel...

Current Mood: depressed
