Big Problems with RH9
Hiya All,

I just installed Red Hat 9, and on first impressions, I was very happy with it. I had a look around the new KDE interface, and proceeded to set up the installation the way I like it, and I bumped into problems right from the start. :(

I typed 'kdesu konqueror' into a run command box, typed in the root password when prompted, then konqueror appeared, then disappeared

If I log into a terminal (xterm) as root, and type konqueror, it will appear, but in the terminal, it will print:
mcop warning: user defined signal handler found for SIG_PIPE, overriding

I am also having problems running gnomemeeting. Again, if i type 'gnomemeeting' in a run box, it appears, then disappears, in a terminal:
PMutex acquired whilst locked by another thread
Multiple segmentation faults occurred; can't display error dialog

Then it disappears again.

I get an error when running any program from a terminal, even if they open fine, such as gaim, the error is:
mcop warning: user defined signal handler found for SIG_PIPE, overriding

I used to get something mentioning the DCOP server when in RH 8, maybe this has something to do with it?

Please try and help me fix this problem, as I dont wanna go crawling back to RH 8, which I had no problems like this with it at all. I did a fresh install of RH 9, with everything.

Thankyou, I look forward to your replies :D

I had a similar problem in RH7.3, but instead of Konqueror appearing, then disappearing like it does on RH9, it just didnt appear at all :(

Is DCOP anything to do with sound? If yes, would installing the ALSA drivers for my card solve the problem (I would have tried by now, but is down)

Thanx y'all
