    Changing WM In Slax?


    I have Slax installed on an SD card, and have it running on a spare PC.
    I just installed Ratpoison (window manager) on it, but don't know how to make it active.
    How would I go about doing this?

    Hmmm, not sure i Slax. You could look for a file ".xsession" in your home directory. If it's there, open it with your favourite editor and see if it's showing the command for the default Slax wm (Don't even know what it is...), and change it to whatever command is needed to bring up rat poison... which I also don't know... If there is no file in your home directory called .xsession you can also try creating it. All you'd need to put in it is the rat poisom wm command. Just some things to try...
