I recently installed Xfree86 on OSX 10.2, and after starting it for the first time, lost my dock and desktop picture. I didn't do much when xfree86 was up, just tried ls and cd then quit it. Rebooting brought back the dock, but not the desktop picture.

Specifically, I installed 4.2.0, then, then 4.2.1.

So far, I have removed all Xfree86 files (ie from Applications/, etc/, usr/) and rebooted. Interestingly, when I go into System Preferences and click on Desktop Picture, System Preferences quits with the "Unexpectedly Quit..." message.

Does anyone have any ideas? Is this related to Xfree86?

thanks in advance,
