ethne with X

Well, I cannot determine the problem with kappa, though I don't think it is just static electricity. It's getting harder and harder to get it to boot, so I'm going to put it away for now and try to get working later. I went ahead and installed X on ethne, though I'm really feeling the drop from Fedora Core 6 to CentOS 4.4. CentOS is wonderful for servers, but I'm going to need a number of things that aren't available for RHEL yet. I'm using Xfce 4.2 (yikes!) because RHEL is still at GTK+ 2.4.x... OpenOffice is still at version 1... etc. So things are kind of old here. I'm probably going to try to install FC6 later next week to get things up to speed, though I'll need to borrow a CD burner from someone...

In the meantime, I need to write my sermon for Sunday :)
