GTop core dump... GWP... GDM X authority settings...

Hi there...

1) Running GTop, I changed the process view font to 'Clean' at 12 point.
GDM core dumped.

2) With a CVS GWP and gnome-print, I get zillions of font warning
messages every time that I type something in gwp. Are people going to be
concentrating a lot more on gwp once 1.0 comes out? The thing gnome
really needs IMHO to make it extremely cool as opposed to just cool is a
decent word processor.

2) Are there any docs on how to installed GNOME? There should be. As an
experiment yesterday, I downloaded the complete set of 0.99.8 RPMs, and
reinstalled from scratch. Having performed a rpm-ihv *.rpm, I ran into
the problem that there is no obvious documentation about installation
(not on the gnome website certainly).
Questions that I ran into (which I know the answer to, but need to be
answered in documentation):
* How do I start gnome? Using gdm in inittab? Using gnome-session in my
.xinitrc? Or do  I just run panel and friends when I want them?
* Why isn't gdm configured by default to use GNOME? The configuration
file in the RPM does not do this...

Question that I'd like to know the answer:
* Starting GNOME with gdm... Gdm appears to set up some kind of
Xauthority authentification. So I regularly get whinging messages about
X clients having access denied. This is all on my local machine. What's
up with gdm?
