Just downloaded and installed the newest ver of L from RedHat's site. Install goes just fine... however.... when I start X, the system pretty well freezes.
I run "startx" - I get the x pointer on a black screen, then eventually all I get is "xterm" and a terminal window on a black desktop.
After much clicking around on my black desktop (no bar at the bottom as expected) I get a light green colored drop down box when clicking and a narrow window at the top labled "TWM Icon Manager". I can make it longer or shorter, but can't figure out the right spell to cast on it to just let me into X. This is getting very frustrating. Have re-installed L about 5 times now, each w/ different options... still the exact same thing starting X.
When I exit out of the hung X (by killing the X process), I get this print out:
