Description Spider 2000-10-11 01:59:11 EDT
A package(.tar.gz.) with a list of changed/added files that I've had to
modify to get blackbox as system wide default desktop environment.
also a modification to XDM - xinit and Xinitrc to use the same functions
for X session management. 
splitting the default xinitrc into two parts with a wrapper. calling the
wrapper from the xdm Xsession script(almost identical to system.wide
xinitrc) and provided more fallback hooks to the xinitrc script.

blackbox is  my desktop environment of choice, due to its memory footprint
and speed.
0.61.x has been rock-stable for me since the release
