It's on Linux 6.1...however, I didn't think to check the core file (showing my
status...) and now I appear to have the problem discussed earlier with the OS
creating a I need to talk to my sysadmin.  Anyways....

It crashes immediately after typing oedit 0000 (or whatever number)...the same
with medit.

This was my problem originally....but I thought I fixed it.  I'll grep for
just to make sure though.

I think I did do this....which leads me to another question.  I'd like my ear
wear position to
appear high on the list (very near the top...under light, maybe?).  How do you
do that if
you can't rearrange the pos?  Or is it just a matter of making sure the
positions are
rearranged EVERYWHERE?

Honestly, I had no idea how to do the two positions represented by 1 after
several failed attempts at it, I created two wear positions (left ear and right

Thanks a lot for the help so far.
