[REBOL] Re: news from my new life with linux

From: rebol665::ifrance::com at: 16-Jun-2002 15:53

Hi Chris, My minimal X-Windows is ICEWM. When you install Mandrake 8.2 with no pachage selected, you are prompt to install Linux with "minimal-X". That's what I chose. My video card is a 4 Mo Matrox Mystic. Pretty old stuff, I know, but it is fine for Windows 98. Since my first message, I have tried to launch rebol only with XTerm. I have changed my linux to boot on console mode where I can launch xinit for starting a bare-bone-X-windows-system. In that case, launching view just displays a big white box on the screen. It is a pity I will have to use VI to edit rebol code ! And again the very same machine can run decently Rebol - Outlokk Express - The Rebol Core PDF beeing open in the background AT THE SAME TIME !
