DeLicate hangs when booting

DeLicate hangs when booting
Hi. I've downloaded and just installed DeLicate, and I've got a problem with the bootup. I've enabled both net and gpm in the "load" menu, amd as a result DeLicate "hangs" as soon as it gets there and goes no further.

Does anyone know what might be happening? This didn't happen when I only loaded the gpm daemon, so I'm guessing it's net which is to blame.

Thanks in advance,

Colonel Panic .

DeliCate startup only fails in my pc because of gpm.
If I delete gpm in the /etc/rc.conf and put this line in etc/rc.local:

/etc/rc.d/gpm start &amp

Gpm does start up fine but doesn't behave as it should in all not-X applications.
As examples: Links works fine with a mouse. Midnight Commander not.

I think and hope tavvva is looking at it.

RE: DeLicate hangs when booting
I believe it should be

/etc/rc.d/gpm start &

instead of

/etc/rc.d/gpm start &amp


.... this seems to be a HTML representation of ampersand (don't know how that appeared here)

It seems that in some cases detaching doesn't work with the current rc.service solution, but apparently works in rc.local. Neither gpm, nor my scripts containing sleeps were able to detach. This needs a deeper analysis.

Please, use the mentioned workaround until it's fixed.

I just updated and patched gpm. The issue disappeared in my case. Please, revert Your local changes, update gpm and enable the gpm service in the delisetup.
