you'll need to just press enter to keep it as currently set.

Do you have a ~/.xinitrc or ~/.xsession file? if so, what are the

I have not .xinitrc

less ~/.xsession is:


##[Desktop Entry]
#Name=Window maker
#Comment=This session logs you into Window Maker
## no icon yet, only the top three are currently used

So, you've told your X session to exit immediately. This will
probably produce the behavior you're seeing, of it exiting immediately. :-)
Try adding the following line at the bottom of .xsession:

exec /usr/bin/wmaker || x-terminal-emulator

and it should work. (that says to run wmaker, and to run an xterm if
wmaker can't be found)
