you need to install development software. not sure how to go about it in rh8 but look in obvious "install software" area of rh

then try again. fluxbox is probably available from you cd's also.

If you're using GDM as a graphical login, create a new file called fluxbox in /etc/X11/gdm/Sessions .
Then, you have to write in it the path of Fluxbox :
/usr/local/bin/fluxbox
5 -
Save and close the file.

6-
chattr +i fluxbox

I don't know how to add sessions in other login managers like kdm or xdm

Hope that helps,

hmmmm...you untarred it to the / directory? I don't see the fluxbox directory though. I would go about it like this:

tar xzvf flux* -C tmp
cd /tmp/flux*
./configure
make
make install

let say you have a package called bob.tar.gz and it's in the /opt folder

cd /opt
ls
bob.tar.gz

tar -xzf bob.tar.gz
cd bob
./configure
make
su
[enter your root password]
make install

Your tgz.tar makes me think that you
might have grabbed a slackware package.
If this is the case you don't need any
of configure, make and make install,but
have it "ready to use" ;)

The directory structure confirms this.
You just should have been using installpkg
rather than tar :}

The tgz.tar extension is somewhat odd, though,
where'd you get the file?

Cheers,
Tink

you may want to consider using linux-mandrake until you get up to speed with linux.
