It's not super-important, but I'd like to understand why this patch fixes things.
You are talking about the editres patch Benson found, right?
I noticed it was for a 1.0.3 version of editres IIRC, not the latest 1.0.5.
I agree--that I would like to understand why this fixes things.
Latest steps we did here:
1. system with old editres, didn't work.
2. applied patch and recompiled
3. now it works.
4. to double-check, remove patch, and recompile.
5. check again, and old copy of editres works.
(but shouldn't as the patch is gone, double checked to be sure)
Am I to think the patch is not making it happen,
but the patching/recompiling process is????
So what exactly could about the patching process makes
a difference (on two different Linux distributions, so far)
I hope somebody can figure out what exactly did fix it.
