    despite previous posts in this thread to the contrary, you should not
    run make (or the preceding configure) as root...always run those as a
    simple user, in your home directory and THEN when you get to

    Code:
    make install
    switch to root..

    well, you must switch to root to do the install *if* you want the
    program available to all system users....if you just want it available
    to the user who is compiling it, then run the install as that user and
    all executables etc will be placed in that users home..

    check around...

    This "memcpy" issue has been reported to the developers (2010-11-04):

    http://sourceforge.net/tracker/?func...96&atid=428680

    Yeah, I got the same error two days ago, while experimenting with
    various window managers. Unlike you, I did not go any further.

    Done, lets see. It looks more like a blackbox code issue, but was hoping if someone has seen this before, or someone might hope its helpful.

    Hi denverd, Sorry didnt see this, but had tried this as.

    this was the first step where I always ran make as myself.. but then somewhere the methods "spaghetti-ed" itself!.. but nevertheless, have tried this.

    I do think its a code issue, which i would have thought lot of people would have seen.. because beleive people do use it.

    I need a WM with a low footprint on my machine (1GB, atom netbook) and am hoping will solve my main issue : Choppy Flash videos for sites other than youtube.
    Midori so far is the best performing of all the browsers, which lead me to think that, lower the WM footprint.. maybe i can get a flash to render/stream faster

    This "memcpy" issue has been reported to the developers (2010-11-04):

    SourceForge.net: blackbox: Detail: 3103029 - Declaration error

    Yeah, I got the same error two days ago, while experimenting with
    various window managers. Unlike you, I did not go any further.

    i can't fault your logic, but imHo, the problem is Flash itself
    (mostly) and it interaction with your graphics

    now it MIGHT be possible to squeeze enough more performance out of
    your atom/graphics team to get smoooth....but, i'd bet your smile
    would come quicker if Adobe put that pig named Flash on a treadmill..

    by the way i just installed a new version of flash here this morning
    (just appeared in the update repo) and i've not had it lock up or fail
    yet....so . . .

    .. definitely,, that needs to be the way to go.. but i guess at the moment am getting somewhere with the blackbox WM with some help from Malcolm from the development team. And i think, now its more about getting it to work more than getting flash to work!

    Also with Malcolms help, have a src blackbox package now.. so lets see how it goes!
    And thanks for the update about flash, will see if there is some improvement
