Hello All,

        My X server crashed suddenly with error

        bad display name ":0" in remove command

        and, after reading and trying everything, I tried to rebuild
XFree86-4 and the "make install" cmd. prodused the following errors.
Can anyone tell me what I am to do next?

1. What's 'side effects' of Ksh built-ins?


I have a book called "The new KornShell Command and Programming
Language". In several chapters, it mentions "side effects" of
built-ins. I'm confused what's that so that I can't understand some
paragraphs. Any help is appreciated.
