    Try running from the console (not in X) the command:

    exec icewm

    Do you use a .xinitrc file?

    I don't know anything about zipslack, so I hope this helps...

    I tried to use exec icewm, and I got the same error. Does any one know where i could find this lib[m]ib.so.1.

    This zipslack, is it installed to the hard drive.
    And for a WM, you shouldn't need the exec.
    In the .xinitrc file you only need

    icewm
