Angstrom EWM Question

Hi,

I built the Angstrom BB Demo Image from scratch today. It boots up
fine. But I have two questions that the community may be able to help
me with:

1) The Enlightenment WM seems to have changed and looks more like QT/
E now. So windows can't be resized, I don't get the controls that I
used to, can't configure panels, etc. How do I change back to the
enlightenment WM? Is there a setup file that I need?

2) If I lauch a Root Shell window, it fails with "su: must be suid
to work properly" error. Any ideas on how to fix this? It worked
fine when I used the 20080920 rootfs from Angstrom /demo/beagleboard.

Any help will be greatly appreciated.

Best regards,
Geof

One typeo for my 1) below. The WM now is GPE -- not QT/e

It should look like the attached screenshot. That's how it looks on my evm with an image built yesterday.

Out of curiosity, did you compile using bitbake or purely from scratch
using configure/make? If you didn't use bitbake, where did you find
the instructions to compile from scratch? Bitbake keeps crashing my
entire Ubuntu machine and I'm trying to find another way to build it.

I use Bitbake. It works for me. But generally, the OE tree seems to
change so fast that it rarely builds fully good images for me. But it
doesn't crash, it just builds images that don't always quite work.
