How to save diagnostic mesg from xinit?

How to save diagnostic mesg from xinit?

Post by Ning Qi » Wed, 24 Aug 1994 04:41:42



I would like to save diagnostic messages from xinit, so I changed
the line:

<path>/xinit -- ${SERVER-<path>/X} $DISPLAY $PASSTHRU $AUTH

in file <path>/openwin to:

<path>/xinit -- ${SERVER-<path>/X} $DISPLAY $PASSTHRU $AUTH >& /tmp/Xerrors_$USER

where <path> stands for $OPENWINHOME/bin.

When I started openwin the next time, however, I got the error:

openwin: Xerrors_$USER bad number.

Could someone tell me how to fix the problem?  Thanks in advance.

1. Start X without startx or xinit? (save mem)

Here is the result of a ps -aux :

My question is that it seems that startx and xinit are taking up a lot of
memory, do you actually need them?  I mean is there a way to start X
(forgive my ignorance if it is warranted) without startx or xinit, it seens
to me that a ton of memory would be saved if you dead.  

P.S. does anybody know why kermit is loaded twice?????
I mean on my 8Meg system I don't have enough resources to run
Mosaic!

Thanks
