  I can't seem to get Xterm to run over X on my 386DX/40. It dies of sig 
11's every time I try and run it over X. my .xsession-errors just says 
"Memory error" (my system log on ttyv0 gives me a more detailed response 
of "<date> <system> /kernel: pid <xterm's pid> (xterm) uid 0: exited on 
signal 11."
  I changes bins hoping that this is the problem -- I pulled the binaries 
off of a working 2.2-SNAP system (old snap though, I don't have the date) 
and I get the same problem still, but this time /var/logs/messages gives 
me the proper uid. (I'm logged in as uid 1000, not 0) Still barfs on a 
sig 11 though. 
  If I run xterm from a text-console (such as a telnet session or one of 
the syscons) it doesn't die -- well, it can't find a display. ;) Perhaps 
the problem is with an X library?
  By the way, I'm running 2.1.5-R installed from's CD. 
Also, I don't subscribe to questions, so please email me at
Thanks in advance...
