Hi there!

Below is a copy of my "Rettvin:1.log" file.  I've changed my WM to
AfterStep - wow what a difference!!!

But the problem persists event thoug the error msg,  "...bad display name
"Rettvin_aage:1" in "add command""  is gone.

Here is what I get:


Xvnc: error in loading shared libraries

AfterStep: can't open display Rettvin:1
Error: Can't open display: Rettvin:1

Any suggestions?
