Re: [K12OSN] Impress Aborts Out in Slide Show



Per chance are they all using the same login name, and saving to the
same directory?

If so:

Give them their own usernames and see what happens (even if they are
temporary for testing) If it works, that is the problem.

Also, how much RAM is on the workstations, and do you have server-based
swap turned on? (could be filling up the swap).

Could it be that your terminals are running out of RAM for X? Try
turning on 
swap for the terminals and see what happens. I had similar problems
with 
Impress on terminals with 128MB of RAM, so I added 256MB of swap and it
ran 
without crashing.
