Thread: xmonad

    Thumbs up xmonad

    I come here seeking the guidance and sage wisdom of those who have traveled this path before.

    I am trying to create an appliance with xmonad configured as the default window manager, but have failed miserably multiple times.

    My config:
    -Minimal X
    -add huskell and home:hgraeber:haskell 12.1 repos
    -choose the ghc and xmonad packages
    -add ~/.xinitrc containing "exec xmonad"
    -add default ~/.xmonad/xmonad.hs config file

    The graphical login (with xdm) would keep restarting upon logging in, so I changed it to console login. I then tried startx, only to fail with a message recommending I chmod 4755 /usr/bin/Xorg and try again. I comply, then try startx again.

    It teases as if it's going to work, then kicks me back to the command line with the following errors:
    (EE) AIGLX error: dlopen of /usr/lib/dri/swrast_dri.so failed (/usr/lib/dri/swrast_dri.so: cannot open shared object file: No such file or directory)
    (EE) GLX: could not load software renderer
    (EE) QEMU 0.12.1 QEMU USB Tablet: failed to initialize for relative axes.

    I'm new to the whole SUSE/non-Debian world, so I'm hoping there's a simple "you are simply missing these packages, young Padawan"-type answer.

    Any help will be greatly appreciated.

    The Mesa package fixes the first two errors--the third doesn't matter, as the same error occurs when ~/.xinitrc ends in exec icewm and launches successfully. Off to #xmonad!
