Description jochem prins 2002-01-27 17:55:16 UTC
Emerging went ok, after that run enlightenment.install to have .xinitrc setup
for enlightenment. When you try to run startx, xfree will crash due to an
incorrect path for enlightenment in .xinitrc. Change in .xinitrc:
exec /usr/enlightenment, this must be exec /usr/sbin/enlightenment or exec
/usr/bin/enlightenment

hmm .. not sure what you mean.

Did you have to change to /usr/bin/enlightenment or to /usr/enlightenment in
your .xinitrc?
Comment 2 jochem prins 2002-01-27 19:21:06 UTC
Change .xinitrc to:
exec /usr/bin/enlightenment
Comment 3 Mikael Hallendal (hallski) (RETIRED) gentoo-dev 2002-01-27 19:28:11 UTC
Ah, now I'm with you. enlightenment.install creates the .xinitrc. hmm, ok, this
will be looked into
Comment 4 Bart Verwilst 2002-03-18 11:09:55 UTC
I never used enlightenment in my life, so i really don't think i'm the right 
person for this :( So, like you asked, i'm transferring this back to you so you 
can appoint someone better..

Seemant: can you see if this bug still exists?
Comment 6 Seemant Kulleen (RETIRED) gentoo-dev 2002-03-19 21:10:51 UTC
This bug does still exist.  And apparently it's a known one from upstream. 
OpenBSD and fink both experienced this same issue.  I borrowed the OpenBSD fix
for this.

Thanks for catching this.
