I am not sure whether i'm using KDM (i'm sure i dind't install it
manually so it
must come with th e X 4.2.0 sources or with one of the slackware A D or
or XDM (well xdm i'm nut sure, it could be, sounds kinda important) GDM
gdk and gtk yes, gdm .. really, i don't think so.

well .. ; ) (no) which was my asking if any other people (especially
3dfx users) have
this same problem. If it's ONLY 3dfx users, (which i'm guessing at here)
it's xv and
3dfx not liking each other.
