I finally got around to installing FreeBSD 4.4, which considering it's my first attempt with *nix, didn't go too badly. I've managed to configure X and everything else, but I've got a bit of a problem, lol.
I installed KDE and GNOME. I had a rough idea as to what they were, but I didn't realise they could conflict with each other. I thought they were 2 separate Window Managers, and it seems that's not the case.
Now, whenever I run either of them, I get lots of segmentation faults; I really do mean lots.
So, my question is this; How do I remove either of them? I tried going through /stand/sysinstall, but there's no uninstall option. I've been to the FreeBSD cheat sheet sites etc. and to be honest, I feel like I'm a little bit over my head lol.
If you're getting a lot of segmentation faults, it may be more than the WMs... KDE and Gnome should not affect each other, since only one should be running at any given time.
I have had a serious problem in the past with random jobs seg-faulting that was caused by faulty memory. I wasn't affected that much by using the command line (lynx, slrn, mail, etc...), but opening X would use a sufficient amount of my memory to hit the dodgy chip...
Mmmm, that's reminded me... I know there are Linux drivers for Lucent modems, but does anyone know if that extends to Unix as well? I'd like to be able to use that modem to connect to the Internet if possible. If not, then I'll just get another.
ok, here's the scoop, google has similar, but nothing that quite fits the bill. here is what I'm up against:
i have a linux system that is running both kde 3.x and gnome 2.x, selectable via gdm.
the kde 3.x app menu is heavily modified and i'm looking for a way to import that over to the... (0 Replies)
I've just done a brand new full clean install of OPenSUSE 10 and thought I'd take a look at Gnome. Having spent a day playing with it I've decided I prefer the familiarity I have with KDE.

Forgive the newbie question. I've been trying to install FreeBSD 5.4 on a new AMD64 based box at work today, and I started running into problems. Maybe some background is appropriate? Here goes...

i have been reading some atticles but i still do not understand the diferrence btw KDE & Gnome. Someone once told me he prefers Gnome to KDE 'coz of it's audio support & Redhat says ver 7.3 has KDE 3.0 & Gnome 1.4. So could someone explain? (2 Replies)
