Can't start Openbox, no errors


Hi,

I am playing with various window managers, and now it's Openbox. I can't start Openbox, using xinit (startx doesn't work as well). I have kind of a warning:
Code:
***** Imlib2 Developer Warning ***** :
    This program is calling the Imlib call:

    imlib_context_free();

    With the parameter:

    context

    being NULL. Please fix your program.
I don't have dbus, X is started on tty3, as I reduced the number of ttys to two. In .xinitrc related to Openbox I have only
Code:
exec openbox-session
System is Unstable. The problem appeared recently, as I was using OB two months ago just fine.

Many thanks

i've seen that imlib warning before, i think it's harmless.

do you always start your window managers via .xinitrc?
no display manager?
does it work normally with other window managers?
content of your .xinitrc?

I always do. No display managers whatsoever. As I said, .xinitrc contains only
Code:
exec openbox-session
(and other lines commented).

I am marking this as solved because I had my .xinitrc messed.
