"I guess I didn't know the window pager was called fluxter, but I have a problem with it. maybe like Zoop, I don't know how to use it. It looks like I can grab the program icons in the pager window and move them around, but the real windows don't move when dragged. Not a big deal, unless talking about my next issue.
When I load and run the Opera 8.5 cloop, it opens a window with the top or program bar above the top of the screen. I can resize the window or I can minimize it, but when I minimize it goes out of the viewable area and you can't get it back. You also can't move the window if you can't grab the title bar."
yes, my problem is almost the same as yours, but with a laptop. With a mouse and a wheel in the middle of it, you can, as k34nt1 said, move from one box of fluxter to another one. But without a mouse and a wheel, so with a simple touch pad, you can't, even if, as you said, you can move windows in the boxes.
I hope that it is possible to expand the point-and-click-in-the-boxes features for fluxbox in order to navigate with point-and-click; another possibility would be to assign a key combination for the navigation from one to another box (as strg+tab in kde). It would be very useful in my opinion.
Concerning your windows size problem: I have had the same problem with one or two extensions (limewire f.ex.); when the top of the window disapear, you can go to the box in fluxter in order to move the window from the top to the bottom a little bit, since you see again the top of the window in order to resize it.
"I think I'm getting 1024x768 and maybe 16 or 24 colors"
a bit off your point: I have 1024x768 with 24 colors (nvidia nv5m64), though with a frugal dsl on my hd. It works very nice. I didn't find any occasion to say it earlier, but now.
"Even with all this stuff loaded, my CPU barely was stressed, maybe 9% max and memory load was relatively low"
With my AMD 800Mhz, I use between 11%-15% of CPU ressources while using 64% of my RAM (at 313 MB) with 50 processes loaded, and heavy apps such as openoffice.uci, thunderbird (gtk2).... Under this conditions, DSL works perfectly.
