Waimea - Config help


System - Mandrake 9.0

I downloaded the latest source from

http://www.waimea.org

./configure
make install

ran just fine

Now there is post configuration that I have to do seen here:

http://www.waimea.org/lfs-hint/waimea.html

I try to run

cat >> ~/.xinitrc << "EOF"
exec waimea
EOF


In a terminal and all I get is

">"

I'm going to go out on a limb and assume that there was a "make" nestled between the "./configure" and the "make install"

Type in "exec waimea", hit enter.
Type in "EOF", hit enter.
(Note: don't type in the quote marks)

Or just open the files that need editing in your favorite editor and add the lines in at the bottom of the file. Same thing
