You may want to post the following information to this forum: 1) Brief description of your computing environment (e.g. CPU model, OS version, memory). 2) During the startup process, there should be a startup screen. On Windows and MacOS, the screen is a centered splash window. Under X Window, the startup appears in the lower left hand corner of the screen. This title screen should display a small line of text that indicates what stage of the startup process is in progress. What line do you see just before the program exits? -- P.J.
