    window maker in freebsd


    I have loaded and upgraded windowmaker it crashes as root but as a user it says it isn't installed. I did get kde working, but I would really rather use windowmaker.
    Any Ideas?
    Oh ya freebsd 5.3

    Thanks,
    Mike
    Some people have told me they don't think a fat penguin really embodies the grace of Linux, which just tells me they have never seen a angry penguin charging at them in excess of 100mph. They'd be a lot more careful about what they say if they had.

    I figured it out. Here it is incase anyone else fights this or is interested

    .xinitrc
    exec wmaker

    startx
