I am having problems with a new Slackware/XFree 3.1 installation. I am new
to Linux, so I am unsure how to troubleshoot my problem from here.
After doing the Slackware Pro 2.1 installation, which appeared to go well.
I tried to compile the first program from an Introduction to X Windows by
Jones. After fixing a few problems with the program, I got it to compile,
but when I run the resulting binary I get a segementation error. I
initially wrote this off as something wrong with the program.
Now I install SWiM 2.0, and after installation, when I run mwm I get the
same Segmentation error. I am beginning to suspect that I have a deeper
problem with my installation.
What is a Segmentation error?
Any ideas on how I can narrow down my problem further?
Any help or advise would be greatly appreciated.
