1. CDE & Linux Problem??


I've just installed the CDE+AccelaretedX (from xinside) on my
linux machine ( RedHat 4.0 Linux 2.0.25) but I'm having a few

My problem is that i can't login to the "Regular session". After writing
passwd I get to see the copyright message for a while just to return to
the dtlogin picture.

The "Failsafe" session works allright so here are my files:

Thu Jan 09 23:00:27 1997
Workspace Manager: I/O error on display:: :0.0

--- Thu Jan  9 23:00:27 MET 1997
--- /usr/dt/bin/Xsession starting...
--- Xsession started by dtlogin
--- sourcing /root/.dtprofile...
--- sourcing /usr/dt/config/Xsession.d/0010.dtpaths...
--- sourcing /usr/dt/config/Xsession.d/0020.dtims...
--- sourcing /usr/dt/config/Xsession.d/0030.dttmpdir...
--- starting /usr/dt/bin/dthello &
--- starting /usr/dt/bin/dtsearchpath
--- starting /usr/dt/bin/dtappgather &
--- execing /usr/dt/bin/dtsession...
not sourcing /root/.profile (see /root/.dtprofile)
X connection to :0.0 broken (explicit kill or server shutdown).

The Accelerated-X server works great with all my other window-managers
so I think that the problem is somewhere in the CDE, But since it's
a newly installed system and I have not changed any of the config files
it seems strange why it should not work.

Is there a way to start the dtwm manually? like running xinit and then
starting the window manager?

How can I see where in the dtssesion the process has faild? The startlog
message does not give a lot of information.

Any clues? Thanks in advance
