first u dont need to get OFFENSIVE for an answer okay!! I hope this is clear from now on.

have u installed the fluxbox?
if not then install it using the rpm u got or from the tarball.
rpm -ivh fluxbox_installation_filename
or,
tar -zxvf fluxbox_tarball
./configure
make
make install

next go to your home directory and see for a .session file. if its not there create it and inside write the path to the fluxbox executable. logout and log back in.

but let me tell u the default kde and gnome panel are very superior than fluxbox. i used it and throw it away 'coz its not thaaaaaaaaaaat good.

why are you not running a more recent version of linux?. You can google and find the information you want in dutch. danke veel you might find this helpful if you read german.

http://de.wikipedia.org/wiki/Fluxbox

here is more if you like:http://www.bartendavid.be/doc/howto/...s/fluxbox.html

Why do you want to run Linux anyway? Only because it is free? Typical Dutch disease. People think Linux is just Windows, but then free as in "you don't have to pay"

If you are dedicated to switch to Linux, be prepared to study a *lot*. It is different from Windows, but on the other hand there is so much information freely available on the Web. Start with reading for three weeks, make a selection for a beginners distro and start. You won't be able to download and watch movies the net day.

Good luck

Translation:

Waarom wil je eigenlijk Linux draaien? Omdat het gratis is? Typisch een Nederlands trekje. Mensen denken dat Linux een soort Windows is, maar dan voor niets, zoals in "je hoeft er niet voor te betalen.

Als je je werkelijk wilt inzetten om naar Linux over te gaan, moet je voorbereid zijn *veel* te leren. Er is een groot verschil met Windows, maar aan de andere kant is het verschrikkelijk veel informatie beschikbaar op het Web. Begin eens met drie weken alleen maar te lezen, kies een goede distro uit, en begin. Je zult niet binnen een dag in staat zijn filmpies the downloaden en te bekijken.

Veel succes

/root/fluxbox-0.1.14.missing: Unkown '--run' option
Try '/root/fluxbox-0.1.14/missing --help' for more information
configure: WARNING: 'missing' script is too old or missing
checkink for gawk... gawk
checking whether make sets ${MAKE}... yes
checking for gcc... no
checking for cc... no
checking for cc... no

All things to the side my opinion is to go get newer version of distro and start over. This is not a dutch thing or any other nationailty thing the issues is:


/root/fluxbox-0.1.14.missing: Unkown '--run' option
Try '/root/fluxbox-0.1.14/missing --help' for more information
configure: WARNING: 'missing' script is too old or missing

Good job for now, though I'd say that multiple GCC versions can't be a good thing. On that note, bad English can never be a good thing either.

Your best bet is to get a newer distro. Try ubuntu, or Fedora Core 4 (Latest "Redhat" version). Both of these come with package managers, so you don't need to compile from source.

Also, why fluxbox? Being very new, I think you may be more comfortable with Gnome or KDE.

rh9 is good. i use the same and i installed fluxbox in it with no hazzales. if you are installing from a rpm and it shows u dependency problems then just go get all the packages that shows in the dependency list from the net ( u may find some of it in u rh9 distribution cd as well) and they again try to install afresh.
if you are installing from a tarball and it shows missing files then just replace them or install them. download the one's you need and do it. its not that complicated you know once you get the hang of things. i know windows a lot easier in installations but its rather sluggish in performance, security and configuration. Don't take my word for that-try it yourselves.

NOTE: YOU MAY REINSTALL YOUR GCC COMPILER TO A NEWER VERSION OR THE ONE YOU FIND IN YOUR RH9 DISTRIBUTION CD.
