-&gt;Are you sure merging the xauth is neccecary? I tried it and had to step out for minute. Gnome locked the screen automatically and since then X hasn't worked, and I get an error saying "error in locking authority file /home/name/.XauthorityNot sure if this is a result of merging the .Xauthority file or not. But I have also never seen those commands used in any other FAQ I have used. +

-Found typo: '... a X terminal...' / Should be: '... an X terminal...' +
-But did it really need **six** revisions of your feedback line to tell me this :-) That is what the ''[Preview]'' button is for...\\  +

->Spotted a formatting typo. Look under **Modifying lilo.conf** +

-The first code block in the section says: +
-<code> +
-label = linux read-only # Non-UMSDOS filesystems should be mounted read-only for checking +
-</code> +
-It should be two lines: +
-<code> +
-label = linux +
-read-only     # Non-UMSDOS filesystems should be mounted read-only for checking +
-</code> +

-Perhaps rogue <key>return</key> key didn't show up? It was probably taking +
-some unwarranted holiday somewhere or other. It might even be slacking somewhere +
-else on this site for all we know. Hey, in the ChangeLog recently Pat lost a '['. +
-"It had fallen off my desk and ended up under a table". That's always a pain. +
- +
-Nice guide Eric. Thanks for the rest of your good work too. I appreciate you +
-highlighting the point Linus made (the infamous /usr/src 'zombie' instructions), +
-and the fact that it's a 'non-issue' with Slackware. +
- +
-However I still think Linus has a point. If nothing else, juggling chainsaws +
-when you're tired, and you've done it a million times before, **could** be +
-hazardous to your health ;-) +

-- mjc - +

-Thanks for spotting this mjc, I fixed it. The kernel sources location is a hot topic on [[http://www.linuxquestions.org/questions/forumdisplay.php?f=14|LQ nowadays]].\\  +
