OO1.1?  Earlier versions were notorious for hanging in the IM.

Are you sure it's kinput2 it's hanging in, and not OO/wnn/canna?

It's normal only when something is looping madly. Usually it's a sign
that something is wrong.

"top" is the quickest way to find which process is hogging the CPU.

Does Mandrake come with Canna? If so, start kinput using Canna. Not that
I have anything against Wnn4; it's just that most people seem to use
Canna, and it'll be easier to discuss/help if we are talking about
the same things.


	- make sure you have OO 1.1
	- make sure Canna is running (RH starts up both)
	- start kinput2 with "kinput2 -xim -canna"

You can probably kill jserver by hand. Do a "ps -ax | grep jserver" to
find its PID, then hit it with a "kill -9"
