    Hi, mouradb - did you ever get FVWM working in SUSE? I'm not sure if it can be installed when doing the actual SUSE installation or not, but I am sure there is a package for it offered by Novell:

    Hope it works out!

    you should just install blackbox or something to keep you going, then download and install fvwm. then you can use YaST to remove blackbox.

    btw, i recommend compiling from source
    Here's why Linux is easier than Windows:
    Package Managers! Apt-Get and Portage (among others) allow users to install programs MUCH easier than Windows can.
    Hardware Drivers. In SuSE, ALL the hardware is detected and installed automatically! How is this harder than Windows' constant disc changing and rebooting?
