Description Paul Campbell 2000-01-18 07:37:00 UTC
1. error in rpm directions
s/XFree86-libs/XFree86-libs*/      /* fix */

2. startx could not find font "fixed:
rpm -ivh XFree86-100dpi-fonts-*    /* fix */

3. startx failed because fvwm error loading libXpm.so.4
rpm -ivh xpm-*

4. startx failed because Netscape not found
rpm -ivh compat-libs-* compat-glibc-*     /* dependency */

rpm -ivh netscape-common-* netscape-communicator-*

Perhaps, you could update the gotcha to suggest that some of these
dependencies should be honored.

I actually like the non-Gnome/KDE enviornment. Too bad the server
install couldn't make it an option.

Is there somewhere to submit items for a "wish list" ?
