Origin of strange error messages when exiting KDE...


Hey all. I've got myself a Slackware 9.1 system running, the 2.4.x ugh i forgot kernal version. I managed to install KDE by downloading packages from the Slackware site. At first it did not work... the xserver was crashing and i saw something about a QT lib when I was brought back to a terminal. So i simply went back to the Slack site and searched QT in the packages and downloaded what seemed to to be relevant. After install, yay KDE works. But my question here is......when i exit the KDE, there seems to be this stream of error messages that have been running in the background in the terminal (although everything seems to work just fine while I'm in KDE). So when I exit KDE, I can see the last little bit of it. Id love to be able to copy and paste them, but im not exactly sure how to copy text from a terminal THEN startx and paste that text in this post or an email or where ever. The error messages seem to say something about bad pixel. I'll write some of it down when i log out, and post what I've got, I just wanted to post now incase this is a typical error or situation. If theres anything i left out, probably alot, that you need to help evaluate here, let me know. Thanks guys.

KDE can spew out quite a lot of stuff to the command line. Its nothing to worry about, Its mainly just information in case anything goes wrong.

Normally you don't see it as within X theres no stdout. To see what program put out, start a konsole and type the programs name at the command prompt.

I downloaded, and installed AIM. I ran it from a terminal inside KDE. At that time i had a problem with ALSA and the terminal would conitiously spit out error messages (as AIM ran just fine)reguarding ALSA, I guess because AIM wanted to make sounds and whatnot. Would this be the same thing your reffering to ?

Thats right, If i run something like kedit from the command line, I get warnings about missing icons, but It works just fine. Most X programs do this.
