I plead to you for guidance oh Arch gurus and non-gurus!
Having a very bizzare [or maybe not] problem here.
basically it's the same thing as https://bbs.archlinux.org/viewtopic.php?id=108734
I chose to post my question in a new post for the reasons that the previous one is dead and the poster never received an answer. Hope that this one will though...
I decided to learn/experiment with a little C programming and I came across TinyWM: http://incise.org/tinywm.html. The problem is that I cannot start it, maybe something is wrong with my gcc compiler configuration, or maybe Xlib. After compilation, on execution of the compiled binary [./tinywm] file I receive no errors, nothing happens, it just "thinks" indefinitely.
I've tried to edit my .xinitrc by adding "exec path/to/binary/tinywm" and executing startx. The screen is black and I get the same result...
After a lot of googling apparently only me with the guy [arlekino] have this problem, which is, I agree VERY STRANGE.... obviously I'm doing something wrong.
Can someone please suggest me something?
