You might want to start fluxbox using a log file
in your .xinitrc in your home directory the last entry is probably
exec /usr/bin/startfluxbox

append -log /path/to/logfile

Then see if you can repeat the error and take a look at the log file and see what it says.


firefox, fluxbox, slackware, videos
