Hello Marcus,

In your last email you told me that the reason I was getting the, 'Xlib
extension "RENDER" missing on display ":0.0". ', message was because I was
using XFree 3.x.  I use RedHat 7.1 which I believe uses the
XFree86-4.0.3-5.i386.rpm package.  So is something more sinister lurking
behind the scenes or have I missed installing some packages?

Thankyou you for telling me this, this is very, very good news.  The only
problem with KDevelop is Kwrite.  Do you know if are they going to change
the editor to something more suited to programming?

Thankyou and regards,
Sláinte (Irish for cheers).
