Hi Niall ,
I am guessing that exceed is some sort of xserver for windoze machines.
The last time that I expereinced something like this it was because
the win-xserver ( xwinPro in my case ) ran its own window manager
and kwm failed to start . KDE checks for a window manager and doesn't
bottom of screen window manager if another one is present . I remedied
running xwinpro in full screen mode . I dont' know whether this will
work for exceed but you might be able to find a suitable option to
enable it to run
I am updating my kernel and some libs in a few hours . Anybody know if
new kernel will cause oss to screw up or not. It claims that it won't
but I need the SMP edition and it has always been a bit troublesome.
Any comments / advice are welcome ...
