Any one has a workable ~/.xinitrc for mwm ?

I found no xinitrc.mwm in /etc/X11/xinit, so I modified xinitrc.twm to be xinitrc.mwm, but it did not work properly, I meant mouse button actions on screen/windows had no reaction at all ( it should pull down a menu like stated in .mwmrc, copied from /etc/X11/mwm/system.mwmrc ), it did nothing .., only startet the xterms ..

Btw, twm worked fine, windowMaker even better, xfce sux .y.

My ~/.xinitrc looked like this:
----------------------------------------------------------------------------------

#!/bin/sh
# $Xorg: xinitrc.cpp,v 1.3 2000/08/17 19:54:30 cpqbld Exp $

userresources=$HOME/.Xresources
usermodmap=$HOME/.Xmodmap
sysresources=/usr/X11R6/lib/X11/xinit/.Xresources
sysmodmap=/usr/X11R6/lib/X11/xinit/.Xmodmap

# merge in defaults and keymaps

if [ -f $sysresources ]; then
xrdb -merge $sysresources
fi

if [ -f $sysmodmap ]; then
xmodmap $sysmodmap
fi

if [ -f $userresources ]; then
xrdb -merge $userresources
fi

if [ -f $usermodmap ]; then
xmodmap $usermodmap
fi

xmodmap /usr/X11R6/lib/mwm/alt.map

# start some nice programs
#twm&
#xterm -geometry 80x50+494+51 &
#xterm -geometry 80x20+494-0 &
#exec xterm -geometry 80x66+0+0 -name login


echo "starting mwm@$HOST ...."
/usr/X11R6/bin/mwm&

echo "Start some nice programs ..."
xterm -ls -sl 1000 -g 78x54-0+0 -sb -bg white -fg darkgreen &
xterm -ls -sl 1000 -g 78x54+0+0 -rightbar -bg white -fg darkgreen &
exec xterm -C -cu -g 88x5-0-0 -name login

Sorry, another question

actually repeated question posted above, Is there any mirror site for "slackware-current 9.1 ISO" dated from 5-SEP-2003, not the directory tree, beside zuul.slackware.biz ?

After got an partition crash, I think gonna stream an new iso into .., therefore I've been downloading the iso (1gb) over 12 hours, got only 18% of it ..

you know you can easily build you own iso. I don't think they usually put out prebuilt isos until after the make a stable release.

Yes they already put out that ISO dated 05-SEP-2003.

Actually I don't want to suck it down, it is too time consuming, I estimated it could take 2days at least maybe 3 or 4 days. Now I got 23% after 18 hours.

Wut u meant with make own ISO ? Wut should I download in that case ? I meant it is too much work to download those directory trees.. Wut I really need is only the the bare.i+2rootDisk+/slackwareTree.

I d/l the ISO it is because it is simpler (1 file). I'd prefer install swared n updated online than making own iso if my system partition didn't get miss state .. I usually have many symbolic link among each other of the distros, sharing the many of the root files among them .. I prefer to make a clean install ..

So if I know another mirror of the new iso of zuul.slackware.com then I can segments the download now, it will be surely be faster ..

You would download what you would like on your install cd I did that for 9.0 before they released an iso. It wasn't too hard in my opinion but then opinions vary. In the post above you will find the iso's you wanted.

Thanks for the link, maybe some other can d/l from there. The ISOs is splitted into 2 parts:

ftp://ftp.biochem.uthscsa.edu/pub/li...052003-CD1.iso

and

ftp://ftp.biochem.uthscsa.edu/pub/li...052003-CD2.iso

The ISO I'm downloading is an one peace ISO of 1.019.104 KB from :
http://zuul.slackware.biz/current-is.../slackware.iso

So I can not segment the download, bcoz it is easily different images (different image-name and size, I dun no how to segment it with getright).

But thank any way for the link posting, I'd d/l from there if I'd not already got 292 MBs from 1020MB (30% after 24 hours). I believe it must be faster to d/l from other site than from slackwareDotBiz, bcoz many ppl is maybe downloading from there parallely ..
