Re: [vox-tech] Linux and exceed

Changing that "start method" fixes that problem, only to let me see two others:

again my connect string:
/usr/X11R6/bin/xterm -fn 6x13 -bg black -bd white -fg lightblue -sb -ls -sl
9999 -display @a@:@#  -T `uname -n`

1) bash: ulimit: cannot modify limit: Operation not permitted
where am I even monkeying with ulimits (whatever they are)

2) my backspace and delete keys don't work.  My machine beeps when I hit those
keys.  I tried doing "stty erase ^H" but it doesn't have any effect.

3) I can't login as root, once I have a xterm going I can "su -" fine, but I
can't initiate my xterm as root
