Exclamation Rox Session Manager

Hello all,

I just tried to install Rox-session on my RH7.3 running fluxbox. I loaded up Rox filer then tried to execute the session program via a Rox window. It did the compile, completed and was supposed to come up with a dialog box asking if I wanted to make it my default session manager, but no go.

Ok, so I delve into the actual directory and find a script called make Right on! So I run it..... the darn thing completely overwrote my .xinitrc and then didn't even work!

So I get things up and going by rewriting some of the functionality back in the file. My question now is: Does anyone have any experience with Rox-session on flux or bb?

I was looking into it but I only use roxfiler.
When I checked it out I found some issues about security and the way programs are handled and started that made me think something like this could happen.Go to and check out the links for more info.
Thats about debian packaging but it explains the problems that the debian people see with rox.
Now this sucks - I have just been there and if I try from here the link gives me a 301 - try instead.
