Problems with Xnest and Gnome.
Authored by: elmlish on Feb 06, '04 04:17:05PM

This is very cool, but I'm having some trouble with getting gnome to work.

I've tried setting the ~/.xinitrc.gnome file I've created to use gnome-session, but there seems to be some problems with Gnome actually starting up. For one, the Xnest window that I should have created is nowhere to be seen and a gnome dialogue box pops up and tells me that Gnome can't figure out my internet address or some craziness like that. I'm then booted to my normal Apple X11 setup whereupon I see another message telling me that gnome-session has crapped out and will try again next time.

Any clues on what I might have wrong? I can create a windowed X session using Xnest so long as I don't include an xinitrc file.
