    I recall getting a mismatch a couple of times. But, for the life of me, I can't remember how I resolved them.

    As far as a display manager, I've always loved the simplicity of XDM.

    I've been using Slim and love its simplicity but have noticed from time to time it can create other problems. In 2.7, starting soffice would make slim go crazy and eat up CPU! Interestingly enough, my work machine has 2.7 with OpenBox instead of IceWM and I get no such problems running soffice.

    I've had mixed results with Romster and don't use it much unless there is a package in his ports that is unavailable elsewhere.

    ignore footprint option lets you do things through the package manager ... display manager I can't help you with - I use startx from the command line

    THAT was it!
    Also (I think):
    Code:
    prt-get depinst -if <package>

    I need to use this machine on Wednesday so I'm taking it back to Debian but I'm going to pull an old P4 lappie out of the loft to continue playing with Crux. It is great fun but taking way longer than expected. You can expect many more daft questions

    Thanks for your help thus far.

    TBH... my first CRUX install took forever! Was dual-booting at the time, so I didn't really lose any functionality, there.
    And your questions just can't be any more daft than mine were!

    example ignore footprint here ... same thread I linked to earlier

    Ed: I found that compile times are quite long on my hardware but Crux certainly runs quickly and only runs what you want ...

    Yep... same link.
    I just didn't read far enough into the page.

    I'm starting to get some of this stuff now. It makes so much more sense when it's related to something I'm actually doing. Pentium 4 will be out of the loft today; or an old AMD desktop depending on which I find first I can use that to play with crux under no time pressure which, as I'm a level 9 procrastinator, means it may or may not get done in the near future!
