Re: [K12OSN] firefox problem



This sounds like the out of memory problem in Firefox and OpenOffice
that Jim Kronebusch was trying to run down a month or two ago. In a
nutshell, the problem is that Firefox and OpenOffice try to cache
image files in the XServer memory, which is a great idea unless the
XServer is running on a thin client without a lot of memory. When the
XServer runs out of memory, the client program crashes. I've seen it
happen *a lot* with both Firefox and Presenter.

I have had that same issue occur with K12LTSP6 32bit as well, but I assumed I had messed something up. Plus it isn't common enough for me to worry about, or isn't reported enough. I realize this isn't helpful info, but I wanted to see if I was in the same boat.
