They're all dated the time of the install of the OS. M. Whitaker emailed me that one of the Skunkware packages may modify /usr/lib/X11/sys.startxrc. I looked in there and something(?) seems to have added: [ -x $XSCCMD ] && $XSCCMD -exit [ -x $XSCRNS ] && $XSCRNS -no-splash & Deleting those lines and changing the owner/group back to bin.bin seems to solved the problem. I don't know what went wrong with the Skunkware install. I told it to install GCC and left for the day and the next morning it appeared to have been installing most everything on Skunkware. So I dont' know what package exactly caused the problem, but I'm conviced it's something on Skunkware. Thanks everyone.
Got something to add? Send me email.
