That's a bit worse than me then - everything works - it just crashes often. I 
have the same optimisations as you, except with i686 instead of pentiumpro.

One thing I noticed - KDE2 does those little popup dialogs when a program 
crashes, just like Windows. They should contain a stack trace or something 
like that, but since I'm compiling without debug info, it doesn't display.

Might be worth it to recompile with lower optimisations and debugging info, 
just to see what happens..

Can't help with that one, sorry. I've pretty much ignored Gnome, except to 
the extent that all Redhat users are forced to have it. KDE and Gnome come 
with some nice programs, but I don't like the interface. They're both little 
more than clones of the Windows interface - I don't like it that much.

Just my opinion of course...
