Hi Riccardo and everybody,

Thanks for the info on the system daemons.

A little update and a couple questions below.  I decided to compile GNUstep 
from svn with the libart backend.  This was done on Mar. 20.  Everything has 
been working relatively fine now.  The segmentation faults have completely gone 
away, except for buggy/alpha programs of course (:

I have been following the instructions in Dennis's Build Guide to start gdomap 
at boot and gdnc and gpbs when I login and start X (via .cshrc and .xinitrc 
respectively).  I am still learning how BSD init and rc work and still have to 
start gdomap by hand.  I'll figure it out soon enough.

Yes.  Even after starting it from .xinitrc, gpbs seems incredibly slow.  
Pasting after a cut or copy is the only operation that works smoothly.  
Selecting text in order to cut or copy basically "pauses" a program (no other 
input is registered) for several seconds before the cut and copy options light 
up in the menu.  Actually cutting or copying takes another few seconds, again 
generally pausing the program.  Can anything be done?

>First of all, be sure to install all base tools as root (gdomap, gdnc).

Must I start gdnc as root like gdomap?  All the documentation I've seen (the 
Build Guide and the Base Tools documentation in the Developer Reference) seem 
to say only individual users need to start it, usually at login.  Perhaps I am 
misunderstanding what the docs recommend.  Or did you mean simply to run "gmake 
install" as root?


Thanks for the help.  I'm sorry if I am being a foolish newbie and flooding the 
mailing list with worthless info.
