Window Managers xmonad 0.4 has been released. "xmonad is a tiling window manager for X. Windows are arranged automatically to tile the screen without gaps or overlap, maximising screen use. Window manager features are accessible from the keyboard: a mouse is optional. xmonad is written, configured and extensible in Haskell. Custom layout algorithms, key bindings and other extensions may be written by the user in Haskell, in config files. Window layouts are applied dynamically, and different layouts may be used on each workspace. Xinerama is fully supported, allowing windows to be tiled across several physical screens."

The screen still stays just black, as with 0.3.

Do you suppose that's an error? It's supposed to be black - you have to make a window, so try pressing ctrl+shift+enter. Also, it's good to install dmenu - and to read the extremely short man page.

Assuming that it does in fact load properly, in which case you probably get at least a mouse pointer on screen.

Of course xmond doesn't care about keyboard input, else I hadn't mentioned it.
It's 'black screen' as in 'error, fault, nothing works', etc...
