1 Hi,
3 first: I saw your "answer" to your own question, but I rather answer
4 this :-) (Besides: 2 hours is not quite the amount of time I would
5 expect a competent answer to a very individual problem...)

17 When xrdb is _not_ installed, what exact program are you killing? So I
18 guess it just must be installed somewhere... Try to find out its PID
19 (via "ps") and check what /proc/<PID>/exe points to (it's a symlink).
21 Then try running the command with the just found out executable from an
22 X terminal (maybe you would have to make a backup copy of the temp file
23 mentioned in the command string you've posted and use that later in the
24 terminal window) and see what happens. You'll probably want to omit the
25 "-quiet" flag...
