When I tried the Openbox version of Slackel last year, after rebooting I was told “something bad has happened” and dumped into the command line. It turned out to be a segmentation fault and it’s still there.

In my review of the KDE version, I asked “what has Slackel got that Salix hasn’t?” In this case, the answer is “only the bug”, since a check on my installation revealed that the Salix repository is the only one set up.
