Black Box Window Manager


O.K everybody, it's me again.
I've got another problem after installing Blackbox succesfully.

How on earth do I start it up?!!!
I installed it following the readme file onto my Red Hat 7.2, all went well. But it didn't tell me how to start it up.

Thanks in advance.

depends how you normally load X really, there's loads of ways.

create a file called /home/yourname/.xinitrc

and put a line saying

exec blackbox

in it.
