Sorry, I thought I did include the version etc. I got it out of the
CBLFS book version 4.4.1 for the desktop. The whole XFCE installation
seems unstable so I went to my mail server and looked for some answers
to my post and saw your reasons for not supporting XFCE in BLFS. I did
finally get into their web site and did look at their open tickets. I
wasn't watching close enough to see what version they were talking about
but there are tons of open tickets about segfaults in a lot of their
code. I may just move on to something else until they get their ducks in
a row. I do like it but I really can't be bothered with constant
crashing for all kinds of reasons. I originally moved to XFCE from gnome
because it was lighter weight. If for some reason I decide to continue
the effort to fix this I'll post the rest of what you asked for. Thanks
for the reply even though it's not supported.
